HP Proliant ML310 G5 system recovery

How do I recover my system if the DVD unit does not read after the boot?
I need to recover Suse linux enterprise 10 from a image boot DVD made with Acronis software. The boot DVD starts and Acronis is loaded, but after booting from a DVD, the system does not recognize the DVD unit any more, and I can not load the image. I tried to run the Linux installation too, but I got the same effect. I updated all the system firmware and ran the smartstart CD, but the application says that the Intel(R) 82081 SATA RAID controller V5.0 is not compatible with the version of Smartstart.

Yeah, smartstart does not work with the sata internal controllers.

If you dvd-reader does not work, maybe it would be worth trying to boot from a USB device instead?
