PE 1950 does not boot from either cd or usb

I have a PE 1950 with BIOS Version 2.6.6. When i try to boot Clonezilla from a bootable cd(it is working on another pc) via boot menu the cd drives led flashes shortly and you can feel the drive to start, then it stops and the server freezes without any further message. Same with an usb stick, when i select the stick the server just freezes and won´t start to boot.

I looked into the bios settings, but could not find anything disabled, which might be connected to this behaviour.

Any tips anybody?

Here is a link to download our 32 bit diagnostics package:

ftp://ftp.us.dell.com/diags/DELL_32-BIT-DIAGNOSTICS_5118-3_R212797.exe

 

Use this to create a bootable CD and run the diagnostic package.    Let us know if the server will run the diagnostics.

Thanks for your quick answer.
Diagnostics is running so i guess i will have to look, why clonezilla is running with the Optiplex, but not the PowerEdge.
