MAC Address for NIC3: disabled / Incorrect nic is displayed - in RBSU

I am having a problem with a BL20p G3 which has one odd configured nic in the bios.

In the general RBSU screen it says:

"MAC Address for NIC3: disabled" where the other three available nics are correctly listing their mac addresses.

In the RBSU "PCI Devices" section the adapter is listed as "Ethernet Network controller". this should be "HPNC7781 Gigabit Server Adapter port x", just like the other three available nics.

As a result Windows is not detecting the nic correctly (exclamation mark in device manager) so the driver has to be installed manually. This is undesireable because we are using automated deployment of our servers.

Any help is appreciated!

Any chance this blade is in a non-Enhanced enclosure?
