Since we don't know what you've done thus far in entirety, I would suggest backing up any data and reinstalling from scratch.

Booting with the "C" key will tell the computer to boot off a disc - but if you've got a Mac mini server, then there's no disc drive. To boot off an external, hold down the "Option" key at boot and choose the drive to start from.
