I installed a QL41164 RNDC card into my R720 and it complains about the option rom at boot. Anyone have any ideas how to disable it? Bios only lets me disable option rom for devices in the pcie slots not the RNDC port.
I think you're getting that because that rNDC is meant for a 13th gen server, not a 12th gen like the R720. If it's the same rNDC generation as the Intel X710 rNDC, then you'll never get rid of those messages; it's a firmware issue that Dell's not going to address because that rNDC was not certified for a 12th gen server.
Yeah, I guessed as much. I don't need to do any booting off this NIC so I figured there might be some way to turn the option rom off all together? Going through the command line tools I don't see anything obvious.
