I was able to successfully compile the flexboot src, just needed to switch gcc version I was using. After speaking with someone in the irc room, they said to append --intelx before '.mrom'. I tried this, but it is still not loading the 8086:1528 device when Flexboot starts up on the Mellanox ConnectX-3 card.

I would burn the rom on the 8086:1528 if it was possible, but unfortunately it isn't and wont allow me to write to it. I have tried using the Bootutil, and other apps to allow but, but says it unsupported. The only option I have is to boot ipxe off the Mellanox card, and some how get it to see and use the intel card if possible. Is there any reason you might know why it says it has no driver for the intel card, when I did compile it in?

As I have said before, you cannot use the FlexBoot tree to build support for any non-Mellanox cards. To get support for other cards (e.g. your 8086:1528 Intel X540 card), you will need to use the standard iPXE tree.

What are you actually trying to achieve? It sounds as though you may be trying to boot from the Intel card, but using the Mellanox card to hold the ROM image. Is this correct?


That is correct, I am wanting the Mellanox card to hold the rom image, but I need to boot of the intel card.
