Booting from PCI-NIC should be possible in new servers.

According to your post "Network card is working taken from another working unit." The question is here, did this NIC work as PXE boot in another server?

Is this PCI NIC a HP branded or third party, if HP what is the model number.

Hi Suman_AN,
Thanks for replay.
We was try to use:

Spares: 586444-001
NC550SFP Dual port

But we was don't have time to trying boot from that device and we decide to buy a normal RJ47 pca alom card. Probably that pci card is damaged or not compatible with server.

We was don't have any HP5900 for QSFP connection and is cheaper to buy alom card then 5900 :)
