DL380G7 win2k8r2 w/sp1 - fatal pci express device error

Already solved, but maybe someone else runs into the same problem. Sorry if this is old news.

Proliant DL380 G7 P/N 583970-421
System firmware 08/16/2010

2 x 5660, 48GB (12 x 2GB, 6 x 4GB)
1 x HP Brocade 1 port FC HBA in slot 3
1 x NC375T in slot 2
4 x SAS 300GB 10K RPM drives on the 410i

Box ran fine with 2008r2.

I did a fresh install of 2008r2 with sp1 integrated downloaded from MS VLSC.
After the "completing installation" chekmark I got a bluescreen.
All I could read was "NMI"
I was using iLO and local DVD for the install, I did not generate an NMI to the system.

After the reboot I got this message:

fatal pci express device error PCI slot ?

The Integrated Management log said:
Uncorrectable PCI Express Error (Embedded device, Bus 0, Device 0, Function 0, Error status 0x00000000)

Saw a similar thread in the forums for an older generation DL, solution was to move a card to another slot.

Updating to firmware 2011.01.30 / 7 Mar 2011 solved the issue, no card shuffling required.
