Won't boot with QLE8150 nic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I'm hoping you can help me out with this issue.  I added in a QLE8150 and the result is now it won't get beyond the Qlogi bios.  I can't even get into the mobo bios with it.  When I remove the nic and use onboard ethernet, I can get back into the mobo bios and boot unraid back up running.


Looking to just get some better in house speeds is the only reason for the nic.  I'd prefer to use it but obviously I'd rather have a running computer.


Any ideas what might help me get my nic working?  Thank you in advance for the help!


Asus z270-ar

I'm looking through the mobo bios right now and I am not seeing any option that resembles disabling the pcie op rom.  


Some of my options under "Platform Misc Config" are below.  This is the only spot I seem to see any pci naming conventions.


pci express native power management(disabled)


pch dmi aspm (disabled)


Aspm (disabled)


Dmi link Aspm control (disabled)


Peg - Aspm (disabled)

Doesn't look like any of those options, you can also try UEFI boot if not yet doing it, with some board that disables legacy opt ROM.

Doing the uefi boot gets it to the unraid boot menu and gets the two boot lines to say OK (bzboot?) but then freezes at that point.


It's progress though!

Sorry, no more ideas, do you have another PC you try try the NIC with an Unraid trial?

I tested it in my windows pc, and still wasn't having any luck.  Ended up picking up an intel dual port, which just plugged and played.  Don't know what the difference is other than maybe incompatibility.
