Broadcom BCM5709 cards not working
I'm having issues with some HP DL360 g7 servers with BCM5709 NICs in them.

I pulled the latest ROM from the iPXE rom-o-matic and when running on new hardware, it works great. But on the Broadcom NICs the iso doesn't see NICs at all. I found a few links in the forums but no real resolution:

http://forum.ipxe.org/showthread.php?tid=23 (Plans to support card Broadcom Net Extreme II - BCM5709 (14e4:1639)) but that one has no resolution.

There is someone who seems to have done work with this: http://ipxe.org/gsoc/bnx2 . Following their git repo I find this https://git.ipxe.org/people/dewyatt/ipxe...heads/bnx2 However, when building an iso from that tree the system hangs when I run ifopen on the NIC. By hang I mean that I run ifopen and then a few seconds later the shell seems to lock being unable to type anything in and nothing prints out.

So... Has anyone gotten these NIC's to work with iPXE? Should I use a different driver (if so how?)?

Thanks!
