Proliant DL380 G4 Problem Installing windows 2008 R2

We have a Proliant DL380 G4. I updated the BIOS to the latest version but having hard time installing windows Server 2008 R2 on it. I have set the USB to boot first and also using a USB external Pioneer DVD rom. the system is set as Raid 5 with drive 0 as spare. any Idea as far as why the DVD rom wont Boot?
Thanks
Aaron

The server 2008 r2 is an OEM license that came with Two DVDS in a Packet a DVD From Microsoft and a OEM preinstallation Kit DVD.

I have set the USB to 1 and which USB do you want me to disable? right now bothe are enabled. Thanks aaron
