Old, meaning, b/4 USB ? Do you get into bios, but no cd/dvd drive shows in boot devices ?

What model is the server? I'm very surprised that it has a DVD drive (which means it cannot be that old) but is unable to boot from it. All IBM servers that I have dealt with in the last 20 years or so could boot from the optical drive.
