ML370 G3 Smart Start 7.80


I'm trying to install W2003 SBS R2 Premium via the SS CD.
The OS is shipped on DVD, SS does offer the option to install from DVD, but it doesn't seem to find the correct folder, instead it prompts me to browse to the proper folder, which doens't work. I then burned a CD with the CD1 folder from the DVD which SS actually accepted, problem is though that its been copying files from the cd for more than hour now, w/o any visible progress. I'm using a SMART ARRAY 642 - ULTRA320 SCSI RAID Controller, one Disk (34 GB) configured as RAID0 for the OS, the other disks are RAID5.

The only possible reason I can think of is that W2K3 SBS R2 PE isn't a choosable option in the OS selection menu, only W2K3 SBS R2 is.
Any help or hints would be greatly appreciated.
