I should assume the CD drive is SCSI? What sequence is it set to come up in? Set it at 2 if possible. Have you checked, or better yet replaced the CD drive? Will it boot with ANYTHING else?
That Hiren's CD is not uuummm, kosher? People having problems booting with it and all, plus the utilities may not have full function anyway. No matter what, you will need to f/disk the destination drive. You will still need the CD drive to install the program too.
Backup software will still make an exact copy of your drive also. You might want to consider a little better product, especially concerning disaster recovery. not to get off topic but, a quote from J. Bolton on backup & recovery
"What will you do if a user overwrites a 1000page doc with a blank file with the same name? What will you do if one of multiple server apps goes bonkers? If the mainboard dies how will imaging get your system back? Do you stock a spare board so the image restore will work on the exact same hardware? After a system crash, Acronis True Image Enterprise Server allows you to perform a full system restore, a bare-metal restore or just a restore of individual files and folders.
Complete system restoration can be performed to an existing system, to a new system with different hardware or to a virtual machine. You could setup a whole new system and dump the image on that.

I am working on one of these now and yes, it should boot from DVDROM. Be aware that it is a notebook style drive and there are no onboard IDE or SATA controllers, so once the drive dies you're in for a wallet hit. Same goes for the floppy drive which is integrated with the DVDROM. Even worse, the presence of the broken floppy usually means a USB floppy drive won't help when loading windows drivers at install time.

Power down thy system,pull the hard drive half way out remove all cards from the slots power up see if you go pass the processor etc,if not go into the system setup f2,integrated devices turn them all.see if you go further if you do go back in turn the devices on one by one,do not put the hard drives in yet.wait until you turn the scsi controler assuming you are using the integrated card.If you still cant the on board raid controler uses a raid dim if you can change thi note it must be the same type.

The hard drive needs to be set as the first SCSI ID device boot device..
The hard drive needs to have the jumper set to SCSI ID 0, the CD and FDD can be set to SCSI ID 1 and SCSI ID 2. No SCSI devices can have the same SCSI ID number unless it is on a different SCS controller.
