I am trying to get an install of server 2016 Standard on a Dell R720.  From what i understand that OS install is not supported.  Can this be done?

During my attempt i have ran into a message that reads:

"A media drive your computer needs is missing.  This could be a DVD, USB or Hard Disk driver.  If you have a CD, DVD, or USB flash drive with the driver on it, please insert it now.

Note: If the installation media for Windows is in the DVD drive or  on a USB drive, you can safely remove it for this step."

Thank you
