 Press F12 for boot menu.

 Booting from CD-Rom...

 CDROM boot failure code : 0004
 Boot failed: could not read the boot disk

 FATAL: No bootable device.

I tried above command with below combinations, but same result.

 -cdrom /dev/scd0
 -cdrom /root/scd0.iso (Created using "dd bs=2048 ..." command.)
 -cdrom /home/windows/windows-server-2003-standard-x86-64-sp2.iso

Any ideas?

The size looks like a dvd. Do other dvd images work? What are their sizes?

What does "could not read the boot disk" mean exactly?

From rombios.c
//   - Here are the cdrom boot failure codes:
//       1 : no atapi device found
//       2 : no atapi cdrom found
//       3 : can not read cd - BRVD
//       4 : cd is not eltorito (BRVD)
//       5 : cd is not eltorito (ISO TAG)
//       6 : cd is not eltorito (ELTORITO TAG)
//       7 : can not read cd - boot catalog
//       8 : boot catalog : bad header
//       9 : boot catalog : bad platform
//      10 : boot catalog : bad signature
//      11 : boot catalog : bootable flag not set
//      12 : can not read cd - boot image
