Standard Boot Order (IPL) configuration is ...

| IPL1: PCI Slot 1 HP NC360T PCIe DP Gigabit Server Adapter
| IPL2: Hard Drive C: (See Boot Controller Order)
| [...]

The NC360T is an addon-card and has an Intel 82571EB chipset. The 
onboard Broadcom NICs are not in use. The local disks are attached to an 
HP Smart Array E200i RAID controller, which is the only mass storage 
controller listed in the Boot Controller Order. If I switch boot order 
or deconfigure the host from DHCP, it boots from local disk just fine.
