DL385 not booting from CD-ROM

Hi, I have a brand new DL385 that I need to configure (my first time with HP). When the server boots it looks for A: then C: then PXE but no D:. In the BIOS it lists the first IPL option as being the CD-ROM but it just doesn't look at it. I booted from a floppy with CD-ROM support and it can't find any drive.

Any ideas why it isn't being found?

Cheers

Should've looked slightly closer! During shipping the drive had moved ever so slightly and although still about 98% plugged in it was out just enough to not be detected.
