ML350 G5, dvd drive doesnt appear in windows

I have a G5, which has an internal DVD drive. I can boot off of the drive, but i cannot see the drive withing server 08x64. I was able to before we rebuilt this box, but since a reformat, the dvd drive is not appearing. If you need more info let me know

I dont really have a solution too it. I changed the drive letters of my radion unit, and then the drive magically appeared after a couple of reboot. It seems to be somewhat reliable now, but i restart the machine so infrequently. Hope this helps a little

I got some help for you. This worked for me. My bios was from 8/2008.
I applied a recent revision to this one and now my dvd drive is there. I hope this works for you.
