I just tried to boot a HP Proliant DL360 server from ISOstick, but it failed to recognise the CDROM drive. I know the ISOstick is configured correctly because I can boot isosel and selected ISO on another computer. FW 1574 iirc.
The server boots from a physical CDROM drive in the same USB port.

Thanks for the report, you're not the first to have issues with isostick on a DL360. I suspect the DL360 doesn't like the fact that isostick presents two drives.
I don't have a DL360 handy to test, but when this feature gets added it can be used to test that: http://reboot.pro/15503/#entry159407

I don't have the DL360 within reach anymore, but I trust it will get fixed at any point in the future.

I received my ISO sticks today and I tested also with an HP DL360 G5 Server. First I had also problem to boot from the stick. The Problem was it always boots from the hard drive. Even if I changed the boot order. So I removed the DVD drive and used the raid bios to delete the array. After this I configured a new array. So the system partition was deleted. After this the system was able to boot from the stick. For me it looks like a problem with the boot order. The system boot only from ISO stick if no other possibility is available.
