Hi - We have a few questions regarding the 82574:
1. We would like to flash the 82574 on an ARM machine but cannot find any ARM binaries for tools such as LANConf. Where can we find tools for an ARM platform?
2. Where can we get access to the latest production flash image for the 82574?
3. We have an external flash connected to the 82574 and no eeprom. However, the LANConf tool is showing both eeprom and flash. Additionally, we are able to clear both, but after power cycling the eeprom is repopulated with the data from before we erased it. We are unable to find anything in the datasheet explaining this behavior; is it expected?
Thank you for contacting Intel Embedded Community.

Thank you for your help! We're having some problems with the eepromARMTool that you sent us. We have a Winbond W25X40BVNIG flash connected to the 82574. Running ./eepromARMtool -dump -NIC=1 gives us a file whose first line is:
8888 8888 8887 0C20 F746 2014 FFFF FFFF
We want to change the MAC address, so we edit the file that was dumped and change the first line to:
70B3 D501 C307 0C20 F746 2014 FFFF FFFF
Then we run ./eepromARMtool -write -NIC=1 -f=new_mac.otp. If we run the dump command again, the flash appears to have the correct contents. However, if we reboot or power cycle the machine and dump again, the output has returned to its original contents. This seems to imply that our changes were not actually flushed to the flash. Do you have any advice for how to fix this problem?
Thanks for your reply.
