Hi.

well i have no idea of what it can be but here's a few things you can try.

Have you tried with smartstart 8.40?

which smartstart did you use x86 or x64? as windows 2008 r2 is an x64 OS I would use the x64 version of smartstart.

we tried with smartstart-8.40-0-x64.zip, the DVD option is not appearing in the 'specify operating system source type'

Re: windows2008 R2 installation

Are you doing this via iLO or physically via the "real dvd-player??

If you are doing this via iLO.. chose the iLO virtual media.

If you are not doing this via iLO - check it out :)
As it has the USB key.. why not try putting the OS on a USB then?
