Default KVM with Ubuntu - Install MS Server 2008 Tutorial

I'm running a Ubuntu 10.04 Server 64bit Maschine (XEON) without Desktop.
(Just Bash & SSH)

I installed KVM with the Ubuntu minimum Setup.
(Ubuntu Server installation - First Setup Screen - F4 - Minimum Install with Virtual.)

I manage & install my Ubunutu VMs with virsh & virt-install.

Now I need to run 2 Windows Server 2008 64bit VMs.

I already tried this:

virt-install --connect qemu:///system -n vmwin2k8 -r 1024 --disk path=server2k8.qcow2,size=50  --cdrom /mnt/data/win2k8.iso --vnc --noautoconsole --os-type windows --os-variant win2k8 --vnclisten=
Now i conntect with VNC.
Everything is working. I press install. Setup is starting.
Then Windows askes me for CD-Rom drivers. I can search for new drivers and can access the CD-ROM.

Further i can change CD-Roms ISOs with "virsh" or add the real CD-ROM Drive
attach-disk vmwin2k8 --type cdrom /dev/sr0 hdc

But there is the catch:

I have no CD-Rom Driver. Never needed one, never heard of it.
What kind of driver do I need here?
Without the correct driver I can't get past this setup screen.

I tried the Virtio Drivers Storage Driver, but no success.

Can somebody give me a hand here?

A Tutorial would be even better.
Ubuntu minimal VM-Host Installation without a Desktop.
Installing & managing Windows & Ubuntu VMs with SSH.

Thanks in advance,

Yes I know this one here. No solution there.
