rx2600 and emulex lp7000

I can??t see an emulex board lp7000 on a HP Server rx2600, in the EFI interface, I have the efiutil.efi, when I run efiutil at the first screen we see:

Emulex Fibre Channle Host Adapter Detected: 1
Host Adapter 0(lpfc0) is an Unknown Device (FFE20000 00000000) (Unknown Mode)

What??s wrong ?

We can??t see and open the LP700??s BIOS at boot time. Is it normal in Itanium architecture? We tested the lp7000 in a Proliant 1600 and it works perfectly.

* The HP Server is a RX2600 with one processor.
* The version kernel is Red Hat Linux Advanced Server for the Itanium 2 processor (IA-64) with 2.4.18-e.25 kernel.
* The BIOS in the LP7000 is Firmware version 3.30a7 for LP7000/E Universal Boot version 3.11a0
