Evidently the boot kernel doesn't like your hardware. What hardware are you using for your server?

There should be no problem with the hardware. Are you sure that your CDs are free of write errors? All of my Sony CD writers create errors, for example.

Seems like this issue pops up from time to time.. Odd optical drives seem to be one common denominator

I would suggest you create a LiveUSB stick to install from.. I would bet the issue lies with your SATA Optical drive.
