We have not had any issues with any of our installs related to Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows 7. However after trying multiple disc's I think that Server 2008 Standard ISO file from the Microsoft site may be corrupted because the error that I receive every time is this one below.
Windows cannot open the required file D:\Sources\Install.wim. Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation. Error code: 0x8007000D.

All of this is well-and-good IF you have the ports to UFAD open in your network ACLs AND are using a routable ip. Jose indicates installs of
2K8-R2 have succeeded in the past so the ACLs should not be a problem; unless he's on a different network segment with tcp ip for UFAD VLANs blocked or he's using a non-routable IP on the new install server.
Either way, if the installation can't reach a KMS server, that option is closed.
A port scan using Wireshark or some similar tool will tell the tale.
