Bios Pb with NC6770 and DL380 G4

When I boot with a NC6770 card, I get at the beginning of the bios boot process:
Proliant System Bios P51 (04/26/2006)
Unsupported PCI Card detected. Remove PCI Card from Slot 02
System Halted!

I tried to move the card to another slot with no success.
I was able to reproduce the problem with different card and different DL.

Is it a known problem ?
Is there a solution ?
(The bios update available on has the same timestamp as my system.)

It may be related to an issue with Hyperthreading and the number of logical CPU's. Please see the following customer advisory.

I hope this helps.

Actually, I was informed by an HP representative that this card is simply not compatible with the G4.
There is no mention of this incompatibility in the product page.
