Issue PXE-booting HP BL460c G7 with ServerEngines/Emulex OneConnect 10Gb NIC using gPXE

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • We have a HP BL460c G7 server which uses a new ServerEngines 10Gb onboard NIC (Emulex).  Unfortuantely gPXE doesn't understand the NIC, so after we load the gpxelinux.0 ROM we are unable to re-initialize the NIC and DHCP so that we can build anything.  The Emulex NIC uses the be2net driver.


  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5
  • gPXE 1.0.1
