Booting from CD

I have a DVD drive installed on my server. With the server booted up you can read off any CD fine.

I have a bootable CD that boots into DOS. This works fine on a variety of PCs. However if I try to boot with it on this server it comes up with "Non-System disk or disk error Replace and press any key when ready".

I've tried changing the boot order to no avail. Also, the server boots the SmartStart CD OK. Does anyone have any bright ideas?

Many thanks

Re: Booting from CD

Hello Jeff,
DVDs are not supported on COMPAQ Servers. I suspect it could be the formatting of the media you are trying to read.
