I have a HP LP 2000R server and was wondering how to access a boot menu to boot the cdrom drive. I have the cdrom drive as the first boot device but am not having any luck in getting the rom to boot cd's. I do see the rom power on on post so im guessing the rom is working. I am trying to install a bootable os cd onto the system and have no other way to load the cdrom into the system.

Hit F2 during post installation to enter computer setup.

Unlike other HP machine(hit F9 to get in bios setup) HP LP 2000R is using F2. Check this guide page 44

Do you mean boot priority menu so you can set CD to boot before HD?
If yes, you need to get in bios to access your "boot menu". Check the doc that I sent you go to number 44 of 140 or page 38 on actual page to see what I meant.
