I've been validating systems with exactly this card recently.
We run a fairly regular tftp - ipxe - http bootserver environment.

The HP branded version of this card (HP Ethernet 560FLR-SFP+)
in a HP system works flawlessly - in bios/undi and UEFI/intelx modes.

However the quanta OCP mezzanine version (QN 10GbE 82599ES)
doesn't work, which is something I've asked Cloudian / Quanta to look 

Tested configs:
- bios / undi
- bios / intelx
- uefi / snp
- uefi / intelx

I've even tried to patch the undi broken irq thing,
but that didn't help either. Something is messed up there,
but for now I'm suspecting firmware/eprom settings.
