Proliant ML310e Gen8 / Windows 2012 R2 / Dvd not being recognized

I have a HP Proliant ML310e Gen8 that I just loaded with Windows server 2012 R2.  The DVD drive is not recognized within windows.  On bootup, it is seen as a Optical Drive  DVD-RAM GH82 attached to the HP AHCI SATA Controller.  The system will boot from the DVD without problem.  Within Server 2102 R2 I cannot find the DVD drive at all.  The Device manager does not list any DVD / CD-ROMs.  I hae search the WEB and hav ebeen unable to find any solutions that work.  How do I get Windwos ot recognoze the DVD Drive?

You can try with a USB-DVD to bypass the internal DVD drive. Just change in the options Boot from USB DVD and disconnect the DVD from the system board.

Also can make a USB booteable with the Download tool SB/DVD Win7. Just need the DVD media with the OS and one USB pen. Convert from DVD to booteable USB pencil and boot it in the server.

I Hope can helps

Hasta la próxima amigo!!
