Some of the older systems had trouble reading a burned dvd. I was able to open a ticket with Oracle and have them replace the drive. The new drive supported dvd-r and did successfully boot.
Pro tip: open the server and look at the label on the dvd-rom. You can google the drive model number to determine what it's compatible with. You are looking for dvd-r, dvd+r, dvd-rw, dvd+rw compatibility to read burned disks. In my case it supported dvd-rom only, so I ordered a replacement drive and also an OEM Solaris dvd. Problem solved.
