HP DL180 G6 optical drive not recognized in windows

I unboxed an HP DL180 G6 and used the included Easy setup CD to install windows 2003 r2. After initial install, it asked for CD2 for R2 install. When I clicked browse, I saw no CD2. I cancelled and did a network install of R2. I went into device manager and see I have a yellow ? and no CD drive in my computer. I saw some threads regarding this when I did a google search but there were no posted solutions. Any ideas/suggestions?

Go to ROM setup during power on. Change the sata controller 1 mode from AHCI to Compatible.
