The nic is reporting (via ethtool -i) that it's running firmware version 1.48.

The nic reported when it started PXE booting: 01:1E:67:87:CE:66
Then when it's doing the debug output (make DEBUG=pci,device,intel,undionly,undinet):

INTEL 0xc2a24 MAC+PHY reset (ctrl 001c0261)
INTEL 0xc2a24 has autoloaded MAC address 01:1e:67:87:ce:69
INTEL 0xc2a24 link status is 8028078c

From the (slightly blurry) video, it looks as though all ports of the i350 are enumerated, including the one with the 01:1e:67:87:ce:66 MAC address.

Quote:IPXE goes on to iterate through debug output related to PCI, finally hanging or (I'm guessing) crashing and resetting the machine.

The crash seems to happen when iPXE tries to load an UNDI ROM for some other NIC in the system. Could you try using bin/intel.pxe instead of bin/ipxe.pxe?
