Bug - Z440 with 2 quad ethernet card

HP Recommended



I try to put two quad ethernet card on a z440 workstation but the workstation hangs on HP logo boot screen.

BIOS is updated to the latest version.


I think that it is a bug on z440 workstation.


Any HP employee can report this bug to HP lab plz ?


Thank you.

same problem here. The PC boots  with one quad ethernet card but not with two.

I like that HP did not respond for about a year -.-

those quad nics consume alot of rom space and also irq's


have you tried disabling the onboard ethernet boot rom (bios, disable loading of the option rom)


and then do the same for the LSI SAS/SATA controllers (if equiped)


you can also set the pci-e slots the quad cards are in to not load the option roms if you will not be booting off them
