In the meantime, we were able to get our new board mostly working by taking an NVM eeprom chip off of an Intel X710-DA2 adapter we had.
We tried using nvmupdate64e on our blank eeprom, but it says "Access Error" (and yes, write protect is disabled).
- Are there other tools available to program the NVM when blank?
- Do we need a separate EEPROM programmer to program it breof ir goes on the board?
- Can it be programmed via JTAG? if so are there tools for that?
Thank you for contacting Intel Embedded Community.
It is important to let you know that the Intel(R) Ethernet Converged Network Adapter X710-DA2 consultations should be addressed to the https://communities.intel.com/community/wired Intel Wired Ethernet Forum Community.
We hope that this information may help you.
