How to disable Network Ports 3 and 4 from BIOS Settings of DL380e Gen8 server - Not Network Boot?

I plan to use only two network ports 1 and 2 on the server which provide 4 network ports.  Previously G6, G7, there is a menu I can disable a physical ports 3 and 4 or others.  Now I am stuck.

 

Hope someone helps me!

I only have the 2 port 10gb  option. In the bios pci enable/disable does the card show as a single card quad port ?

I can disable in the bios, system options, embedded nics.

Note that the G7 servers onboard nics were dual port nic's. port 1 and 2 ///// port 3 and 4.

 

Best to use port 1 and 3 or 2 and 4 for redundancy.

I think this is related to boot status, for boot order, not to disable the port
