MOSS on a fresh 2008 R2 sever - error on install

Trying to install MOSS on an 2008 R2 server, fresh installs each.

Got a "This program is blocked due to compatibility issues" with references to KB article 962935.

Here's the fix, courtesy of Thibault B.

Slipstreaming SharePoint SP2 into SharePoint 2007 Server with SP1 does the job when trying to install on a fresh Windows Server 2008 R2. Basically all you have to do is the following:
Extract OfficeServerwithSP1.exe by executing "OfficeServerwithSP1.exe /extract:C:\yourpathsp1\"
Extract officeserver2007sp2-kb953334-x64-fullfile-en-us by executing "officeserver2007sp2-kb953334-x64-fullfile-en-us /extract:C:\yourpathsp2\"
Copying all files from "C:\yourpathsp2\" to "C:\yourpathsp1\Updates\"It worked like a charm for me :)
