When trying to deploy Windows server onto a Dell server you see this error message....
Turns out that this is caused by iDRAC firmware version 18.104.22.168 you can work around this by selecting Core mode and adding the GUI features later or downgrading the iDRAC firmware.

Deployment of Windows Server operating systems (OS) using LC may fail with one of the following message:
- Windows installation cannot continue because a required driver could not be installed.
- Product key required.
- Windows cannot find the software license terms.
- Remove all the installed add-on devices before starting the OS installation. After the OS installation is complete, connect the add-on devices and manually install the remaining drivers using Dell Update Packages (DUPs).
- To avoid physically removing the hardware, disable the PCle slots in the BIOS.
