AIX/ RS6000 boot up screen

I'm trying to do an AIX 5.3 upgrade from AIX 5.2.
I have the update files on a DVD and i also mounted the DVD before i do a shutdown and reboot.
When i reboot, i dont get the display on the monitor to go to the SMS mode.
I guess that particular screen is not even popping up on the screen.

Any ideas? I haven't seen something like this before.

I would have booted it from the DVD ROM if i could go to the SMS mode on that particular screen.
