DL360 1706-Smart Array 5XX Controller Extended BIOS

Trying to install Red Hat ES4 via pxe boot, and I get the following error: 1706-Smart Array 5XX Controller Extended BIOS Data Area Memory Has Been Corrupted. I have a 5i and a 532 controller. 5i controller is embedded, and the 532 is PCI... the 532 is disabled. Could this be a system board problem?

I get the same error while trying to install Linux OS through PXE boot on DL380 server. It says "1706-Smart Array 6XX Controller Extended BIOS Data Area Memory Corrupted" Any solution to this problem?

This problem was resolved by downgrading the System ROM version from 2005.04.27 to 2004.12.02. I used the Firmware Maintenance CD, ROM upgrade tab, Custom, Allow Downgrades option.

After downgrading System ROM, the PXE booting went smoothly and OS was installed.

Had a similar problem with DL580G3 and DL585. Try updating your pxelinux.0 file. That worked for me.
