Proliant ML350 with RedHat Linux 8.0 Installation Issues

Even though RedHat 8.0 is certified on a Proliant ML350, I am having plenty of issues. My main problem is that the embedded NIC hangs whenever I access it with messages such as "NMI, Dazed and Confused". I have followed all possible guidelines for installation, with and without installing the most recent HP drivers, with and without removing the tg3 driver and swapping by the certified bcm5700 driver, even tried to install with RedHat 7.3 and ultimately Fedora Core 1 to ensure I have the latest greatest 2.4 kernel. Problems still persist. I am starting to think the problems are either BIOS Setting (ACPI) related (I've tried all scenarios there as well), or that I have a Hardware issue.

Any HP Proliant / Linux expert out there that could assist in solving this issue ? Are there diagnostics available for the NIC ? (Did not find any on SmartStart CD)

I would appreciate any help
