DL360 won't boot from cdrom

SO I put in a smart start cd on another box dl360 g2 and it would not boot from the cdrom, It would light up fro a second then go to the O/S so I wasn't able to run the diagnostics.
IS this a bad cdrom or is there a jumper or bios setting for this?

Verify that the CD-Rom is seated properly in the server.

Does the CD boot on a different server?

What version of smart start is on the CD?

Hi

The reasons can be many
it can be the media itself is bad
the cd drive might be bad(rare)

The media can be tested on another server to make sure.

I know the media is OK as I used it on 10 boxes after this one.
I need to swap the cdrom around and see if that makes a difference
