HP 560sfp+ PXE boot

Hi.

 

We bought a 560sfp+ 10GB dual port card for our dl980 g7 and it says in the specs that it should be able to PXE boot.  

 

The only avalible option in bios is to boot the the onboard nics and even if I disable thoose nics and choose network boot it doesn't PXE boot on the 10GB nics.

 

the HP 560sfp+ is a intel chipset called 82599. After some googeling it seems like Intel have something they call BootAgent on the card and that is used to activate functions. But i can't find any information on this from HP. Any input is welcome.

NC560 probably also "affected"

 

I used in my case for NC366m this command - need t download utility bootutil from Intel:

“bootutilw64e –NIC=1 –BOOTENABLE=PXE –MESSAGEENABLE”
