Windows Server 2008 install troubles

I wanted to re-purpose an old computer I built into a web server using Windows Server 2008. I got an error message saying “Required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing.” I found it funny since I had to use the DVD driver to get to this point.

If you do a Google search on this topic, you will notice a lot of frustrated installers who have a similar problem and no solution. One solution I kept reading was to switch the DVD jumpers from master to slave. I wasn’t expecting this to work, but to my surprise, I got to the cd key screen.

Hope this helps someone trying to install Windows!
