Question about Dell PowerEdge 2600 Server
Have the same problem in DELL poweredge 2600, as I can't use CD to boot up my system, also my CD is a valid bootable one, which have been tested in other computers.
Also, I have choosed my CD rom to be first boot device in the SETUP menu.
But with no luck, it is not detetced.
The Dell original standard CD drive shipped with the PE2600 is incapable of 'understanding' the latest generation of bootable CD's (no matter what the BIOS says).
As far as I can tell, it's not fixable in the firmware ..
However you can swap it out for a more modern drive - such as the TS-L462C (which is a plug in replacement combined DVD reader / CD reader/writer - and Dell post the required drivers on their PE 2600 web pages, so I assume it must be a 'supported' solution)

Try testing the CD with another CD Rom Drive.
