proLiant 6500 server

I have 4 of these monsters that won't boot from smartstart 5.5 in the cd nor from any boot disk in the floppy. Does anyone have an idea for what I could try to get them to boot?

Enable Diskette Boot at System Maintenance Switch SW Position #4, System will boot from the diskette drive if enabled.
If it's Xeon search at Future board if PPro directly at System Board for tower upper left (for Rack, fare end right).
If that won't help disconnect all HDD, try to use SP22002

and try one more time to boot, otherwise it's HW Problem

that didn't work, so what kind of HW issue could it be?

at System Maintenance Switch enable Sw 6 disconect any SCSI cables from SCSI cages try both: with SW 4and without
Would O/S CD Load ? or boot Floppy Drive ? one of 4 should work, if that would make difference, verify all seetings for CD ROM CS
