Proliant MicroServer Gen8 does not finalize Windows 2008 R2 installation

Using the HPE Smart Storage Administrator, i created a RAID1 array (2x Toshiba 1TB + 1 spare) as Logical Drive volume and I tagged it as bootable (Dynamic Smart Array -> Set bootable logical Drive/Volume -> Logical Drive 1: Primary Boot Logical Drive/Volume).

After that I installed our Windows 2008 R2 Standard license using HPE Intelligent Provisioning:

Select Operating System:
. OS Family: Microsoft Windows
. Install method: Customized
. Source Media: DVD

_ Provide Operating System Information
. Operating System: Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2, Standard Edition
. OS LAnguage: English
. OS Keyboard: Italiano
. Computer Name: xxxxxx
. Administrator Password: <yyyyy>

At the end of process the server reboot, then starts (i believe) Windows PE then appears the background of Windows 2008 Server and finally a Window telling:

"Windows installation encountered an unexpected error. Varify the installation sources are accessible, and restart the installation. Error code: 0xC0000005"

I spent hours but with no luck.

I think it's a problem related to Windows 2008 DVD unit driver.

In my opinion the Windows 2008 second step does not proceed due the impossibility to find the files in the installation DVD.
