pxe booting a ML570 g3

I am trying to pxe boot a ML570 g3 server, and i cant seem to get it to work on the first onboard nic (broadcom). If I use the second onboard nic and change the irq so it doesn't confilct with the p600 controller it seems to work. has anyone seen this, or know of a fix.

1 quad intel nic

I have a different configuration, an ML570 G3 with SA-6402, and it successfully PXE-boots using the first NC7782...not that this helps you much.

Have you tried the latest version of the ML570 G3 BIOS?

Yes,I updated the firmware. I still can't pxe boot off the first nic. I can off the second. it seems to be an irq conflict. If I change the irq on the first nic the irq on the p600 controller also changes to the same number.

And you're doing the obvious stuff like enabling PXE for the first NIC and maybe changing the boot order, etcetera?
