Orca LAN boot

Hi,

I found a strange thing in Orca, I wanna boot from LAN and do a net install from A5230A-- PCI 10/100Base-T LAN Adptr, or A6825A--PCI 1000Base-T Gigabit Ethernet Adpt, but it's strange that EFI can't see either of them. I use 'reconnect -r' and 'map -r' and 'devices'/'drvtree' command, I can see the ethernet card, but when I tried 'Add a boot option', there's no option for ethernet MAC.

This is strange , hum?

Do you have any suggestions?

Thx.

Re: Orca LAN boot

Hum,

I found when EFI boot up in rx2600/4640, There's a word said 'Broadcom NETextreme EFI Driver 3.07', but in Orca there isn't.

Seem's the EFI system missed Broadcom driver, where can I get it then? I've searched HP, broadcom, even Intel, did not got hints.

Thx.
