Install Windows SBS Server 2011



SBSAnswerFile.xml shoulb be placed on USB flashdisk or Floppy.

Windows installer didn't recognize USB flashdisk, so I used Floppy image:
# create FAT formatted image
mkfs.msdos -C floppy.img 1440

# mount image and copy file
mkdir /mnt/floppy
mount floppy.img /mnt/floppy
cp SBSAnswerFile.xml /mnt/floppy/
umount /mnt/floppy


Provide VIRTIO drivers to Windows installer - download .ISO image and mount it as virtual CDROM:
wget http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/virtio-win/latest/images/bin/virtio-win-0.1-30.iso
