In uefi lanboot select doesn't show all HP NC532m Dual Port Flex-10 virtual nics

Hi,

I am on a bl870c that has a HP NC532m Dual Port Flex-10 mezzazine card installed.

I don't know if it's supposes to work this way, but only 1 vnic per  HP NC532m  port is available in the UEFI shell.

I need to boot from one of the Vnics that it's not listed, I have the 4 internal broadcom ports, and only 2 HP NC532m ports:

AB D X X 1 3 - Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet (BCM5704)
AC D X X 1 3 - Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet (BCM5704)

BA D X X 1 3 - Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet (BCM5704)
BB D X X 1 3 - Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet (BCM5704)

C8 D X X 1 3 - HP NC532m Dual Port Flex-10 10GbE Multifunction BL-c Adapter
C9 D X X 1 3 - HP NC532m Dual Port Flex-10 10GbE Multifunction BL-c Adapter

Shell> lanboot select

06 Acpi(HPQ0002,PNP0A08,400)/Pci(0|0)/Pci(0|1)/Mac(0017A4770016)

I have updated the EFI driver to the latest version, but it's just the same. also I have tried to use drvcfg to access the configuration of these cards, but I don't get any config menu

From the OS, there is no problem.
