Booting To USB No NIC

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

My issue is that when I boot from the USB with XPEnoboot DS3615xs 5.2-5592.2 boot image, it doesn't see my Ethernet cable... I have a Dell PowerEdge R610 which I got from work.

 

The NIC port itself does show its on with traffic but my router doesn't notice it as well.

 

Any help would be appreciated if there's any ideas or suggestions.

 

Thank you

It's a know issue with Broadcom NetXtreme II 5709c network adapter. (missing firmware)

This will be included in the next release :wink:

 

Thanks for your help!

 

Too bad I know nothing about adding that file into /lib/firmware/bnx2 to actually get the NIC up.
