Try this:

Light path diagnostics

Many errors are first indicated by the illumination of the system-error light in the operator information panel on the front of the server. One or more lights inside the server might also be lit that can direct you to the source of the error. The system information LED lights to alert you that there might be important information recorded in the system-error log. 2. Removing the left-side cover and look at the light panel. These LEDs indicate the type of error that has occurred.3. Once you know the general type of error and the general location of the component involved, the next step is to check the system service label on the outside of the server. This label gives an overview of internal components that correspond to many of the LEDs on the light path diagnostics panel and can help to view lit LEDs inside the server. Note: Some of the LEDs on the light path diagnostics panel will not have a corresponding LED lit on the system board.

Good Luck

Ok, you need to go into the BIOS and change the boot order of your server, as the power comes on press and hold F2 and then go into the boot menu and change the order of the boot to allow the USB to boot first.
