Your server uses a Super P8SCi Motherboard, and according to the manual for your server on page 4-2, you can enter the bios of the computer by rapidly pressing the DELETE key when you first power on the server. This will take youto the bios setup screen. At the top, you'll see an option called boot. Use the arrows keys to navigate over to it, and change your first boot device to the CD-ROM Drive. Then SAVE AND EXIT, and it will now boot from any cd before looking to boot from the hard drive.

right ..disconnect the power supply ...open and remove for a few seconds the bios battery ...its looks like a a button ......something like a ag battery from an electronic watch ..only larger ...
after that you will have to reset the time and date ...cause all it will be reset to the factory defaults..and it will have the date from the bios fabrication ...it will work for sure ..
if you do not want to open it ...and you need it for booting a OS installation session from disk ..try to press F8 on boot ...just like entering bios...and select from there the boot device..good lusk !

Restart the computer, and read the first message (white text on a black background), hoping that it says something like "press F1 to enter BIOS setup, press F12 to select boot priority".
If it does, press F12, and then select the CD-ROM device as the "bootable" device.

SOURCE: need to flash the bios
You cannot remove the password by flashing the bios. However, there are two possibilities that _might_ work, depending on how that particular model works:
1. Unplug the computer and remove the internal clock battery for a few hours at least - maybe overnight
2. Some motherboards have a "CMOS Reset" jumper on them that you can use to reset any password in the BIOS (and any other BIOS settings). It will probably be a two position jumper on the motherboard, usually somewhere near the clock battery. Put the jumper on the opposite position that it is in, power up the computer for about 30 seconds, power off the computer, then replace the jumper back to it's original spot. Then boot up the computer normally and you should be able to go into the BIOS
These two options don't apply to all systems, but probably most of them. IBMs are an exception because they store the BIOS passwords encrypted in a memory chip that doesn't require battery backup, so on them there is no way to reset the password. Hopefully yours is not like that and one of the solutions I gave will work.
