    The HP service pack for proliant should flash them to stock OEM firmware.

    Flashing firmware on HP 649281-B21 to stock Mellanox MCX354A-FCBT (ConnectX-3) guide:

    I combined these results from other posts as well as my experiences.

    For Windows Server 2016:

    Step 1 - download and install:
    Mellanox WinMFT_x64.exe (latest version from Mellanox Website under firmware tools)

    Step 2 - download firmware for your card from Mellanox Website. Mine was an HP 649281-B21 which means i needed the MCX354A-FCBT firmware. Be sure which card is yours.
    Rename downloaded firmware file to fw.bin
    copy it to:
    C:\Program Files\Mellanox\WinMFT>

    Step 3 - open command prompt as administrator
    cd to directory:
    C:\Program Files\Mellanox\WinMFT>

    0) mst status
    1) mlxfwmanager
    2) flint -d mt4099_pci_cr0 -i fw.bin -allow_psid_change burn

    where "mt4099_pci_cr0" is the name output from commands 0 or 1

    It should say "You are about to replace current PSID on flash - "HP_02802xxxxx" with a different PSID... etc.
    Do you want to continue, type Y.

    Thats it.
