PXE boot from onboard NIC not possible with 4 more NICs on DL585?

I have tried to make RDP OS deployment on a new DL585 G5 server. The server has 4 additional NICs installed - 2*NC380T, NC7170 and a NC364T.
In the BIOS Boot order list there are 9 entries floppy,cd-rom,disk drive, 5 PXE for the additional NICs - but no one for the onboard NC371i NIC. It is possible to disable the PXE option on the NC380T and other NICs? I don't need the PXE boot on every port of the NC380T DP Broadcom NICs nor on the NC7170. They are connected to different networks.

have you gone into System Settings in RBSU and enabled PXE for the onboard NIC?

The 1st onboard NIC is enabled by default.
When the other NICs are removed from the slots the PXE boot from 1st onboard NIC appears again in the boot list after the floppy, cdrom, hard disk drive and the USB devices.
