Eg. the machine on which you downloaded and installed the LiveCD files
in the first place? Or one of the already installed servers, or even a
removable hard drive.

You don't need a DVD drive to do an install, and using a Desktop LiveCD
to do server installs and then blaming it being inappropriate for
servers shows a lack of realism and/or imagination.
