Hi, a client has asked me to swop their aging server for a PE T300 which is a couple of years old.

The server has 3 x 500GB SATA hot swop drives which appear to be in a RAID 5 configuration.

It's loaded with Server 2008 Standard but no-one knows the password. There are only 6 users so I would like to put on SBS 2008 for them.

Anyway, before they shell out for a retail version of SBS 2008 I am testing it today using a trial version burnt onto DVD.

However, whereas I'd like to boot from the DVD, that's not showing as an option omly floppy, HDD and embedded NIC.

How do I set it to boot from the DVD drive?

Thanks for any pointers.
