Will not boot from Server 2008 DVD

New server will not boot from Server 2008 Install DVD. Server will boot from XP

We have tried the Server 2008 DVD on 3 other computers they all boot from it... But this one server will not, we have switched the DVD-Rom, Cables, Etc.

Please help, this is for an exchange server, that was supposed to setup last week.

I Figured it out... DVD Drive we were using does not support DVD in Boot/Dos Mode. Only in Windows.

Problem was fixed by purchasing a new DVD rom.

ya... it did.. XP is a CD-Rom... Server 2008 is a DVD-Rom... Even though it was a DVD rom it only supported CD in Dos
