Dell PowerEdge 2600 wont boot off SCSI CD Rom

Last Modified: 2016-11-22
I need to get an OS back on a PE 2600. Obviously she is old but I need it to load once more so I thought simple put in CD and away you go. I cant for the life of me get it to boot off its SCSI CD Rom drive. It lights up and you can put the CD in so all seems fine but it wont recognise it on boot.

Any ideas as I cant use USB boot due to age etc
