HP Server

I am trying to boot this server via external DVD drive.  For some reason it will not boot from this device. What is the trick to get it to boot from the external drive?  I did try all the options in the bios at start up.

Thanks!

An old one probably, some didn't like to boot certain makes of USB CDs or DVDs.

I have that sane issue with several diff. Models of HP servers. Odd that one will work and another won't even though they are the sane.

As a workaround, I use iLO and mount the ISO in the remote control utility. Works great!
