installing windows 2012 r2 on dl380 g7

I am trying to install windows server 2012 r2 on a DL380 G7 ProLiant. But it can't boot from Windows installation DVD. As far as I know there is no smartstart CD which supports Windows 2012. I am told that first I have to boot the server with SPP and update the server then I can use the Windows installation DVD to boot the server. Is it right? Or are there any other solution?
