Ml310e Gen 8 - server 2012 r2 Foundation DVD install Problems

Having problems installing Server 2012 r2 Foundation from DVD after the server was used to test server 2016 TP5 Ess.

Have cleared the SSD drive used for the OS and re-set the disks on the B120i.

The problem is that when I try to install the foundation product from the Server 2012 R2 Foundation DVD (ROK) the Storage server software is installed (NOTE - I'm a home User with a little understanding the server product) based on using Windows Home server v1, v2, then the Business server release. 

Had a 2012 release when i got the ml310e but lost the key and have been using Server 2016 tp5 essensals but thought it was about time to replace the os. was looking a the 2016 version but at £500+ too much so I got the £200 Foundation version. but can not get it to insatll the full foundation / essentials software or is it thet the foundation version does not have the essentals package on it?
