Step 1: Load the CD or Image onto a drive.

Step 2: Save the following block of xml into a file named "Config.xml" in the root of your C drive. The path of the file will be "C:\Config.xml"

  <Package Id="sts">
    <Setting Id="LAUNCHEDFROMSETUPSTS" Value="Yes"/>
  <Package Id="spswfe">
    <Setting Id="SETUPCALLED" Value="1"/>
    <Setting Id="OFFICESERVERPREMIUM" Value="1" />
  <Logging Type="verbose" Path="%temp%" Template="SharePoint Server Setup(*).log"/>
  <Display Level="basic" CompletionNotice="No" AcceptEula="Yes"/>

  <Setting Id="USINGUIINSTALLMODE" Value="1"/>
  <Setting Id="SETUPTYPE" Value="CLEAN_INSTALL"/>

Step 3: Update PIDKEY with your actual product key in the config.xml file.

Step 4: Open command prompt by going Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt

Step 5: Type into the prompt "<drive>", replace <drive> with the drive you've used, e.g. "D:"

Step 6: Type into the prompt "setup.exe /config c:\Config.xml"
