Server 2008 installation asks for optical drive driver.

I'm installing windows server 2008 std on my proliant dl160g5. I use lights out 100 with virtual media. Everything goes ok until I get the request to provide a driver for optical disk drive. And I can not continue installation process.
Previously I installed Windows Server 2003 on this server, and i did not have any driver requests.

Have you tried building this server using the latest Smart Start - that pre-loads some drivers.

Smart Start does not support dl160g5 servers.
