RILO2 Board in DL380G2 will not Boot from virtuell CD

I have DL380G2 Servers with RILO2 Boards. I Can not boot from the virtuell CD (Smartstart). Booting from Floppy is OK.
All Bios and Firmware are new.

With DL380G3 with ILO it is no Problem!

Is this a Failure or is it not supportet?

Hi, an piece of marketing info for RILO2

NOTE: Booting a remote server from USB-based Virtual Floppy and CD requires server hardware and ROM support of these USB media devices.
Recent-shipping ProLiant servers include hardware support of USB media devices and need only a ROM update to support booting from a USB device. This support will be available via future ROM upgrades for USB-enabled servers and will be a standard feature of newer servers

So sheck if your server has the latest rom...

Re: RILO2 Board in DL380G2 will not Boot from virtuell CD

hm...HP advisory:

The following ProLiant server models do not support legacy mode USB and therefore cannot boot from RILOE II USB-based Virtual Media (USB Virtual CD-ROM Drive or USB Virtual Floppy Drive) or use any USB-based Virtual Media features that are outside an operating system that has native USB support:

ProLiant DL380 G2
ProLiant ML330 G2
ProLiant ML350 G2
ProLiant ML370 G2
All other USB-based Virtual Media features are supported on these servers.

SCOPE
Any of the following ProLiant server models configured with a Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition II (RILOE II):

ProLiant DL380 G2
ProLiant ML330 G2
ProLiant ML350 G2
ProLiant ML370 G2
ProLiant DL380 G3, 2.4 GHz, 400MHz Front Side Bus
ProLiant DL380 G3, 2.8 GHz, 400MHz Front Side Bus
ProLiant ML370 G3, 2.4 GHz, 400MHz Front Side Bus
ProLiant ML370 G3, 2.8 GHz, 400MHz Front Side Bus

RESOLUTION
There are no plans to provide USB-based Virtual Media boot support for the following ProLiant server models:

ProLiant DL380 G2
ProLiant ML330 G2
ProLiant ML350 G2
ProLiant ML370 G2

Sadly...
