DL360 G5 won't boot from int. or ext. DVD

I have an odd problem with a DL360 G5. It won't boot from the internal DVD drive or from an external USB DVD drive. The only medium it boots of is a USB key. I was able to install ESXi but now I can't create VMs because I can't access CDs or DVDs with the installer files.
So far I tried the following:
Swapped the internal drive with a brandnew one - no go.
Used different ext. USB DVD drives - no go.
Updated the firmware - no go.
Re-seated the cables - no change.
Any ideas? Thanks!

Hi Karlo,
I did that too but no change.Could it be a hardware issue? Backplane?
Thanks,
