DL180 G5 not recognizing USB DVD on bootup

It doesn't come with DVD drive. I'm using an external Sony DVD reader/writer to try to install Windows 2008. I looked at System Setup and USB is enabled. Bootup options only list network and HD but no USB bootup is mentioned. Any ideas?

I did try to boot from it from various USB ports but no luck. I will have to see if I can update rom somehow with USB key. Perhaps my DVD reader is not recognized. Is there an external DVD any of you recommend?
