DL320 G5p CD problem

I got 2 DL320 G5p servers. Trying to set them up and having problem to start from SmartStart CD.
On the first server, can't see the CD-ROM drive during the POST screen. Checked on the BIOS and configured the CD is at the top of the Boot order list. Still no luck to boot from the CD drive.
On the second server, sometime, it can see the CD drive during the POST, but mostly it didn't show up on the POST. Even though the CD show up in the POST, it failed to boot from the CD (Windows bootable and SmartStart).

Both server are using "HP 8 Internal Port 64/133 PCI-X SAS HBA" controller. Onboard SATA Raid is disabled.

I appreciate any help. Thank you.
