Issue with igb driver



I am using a I210 component on a custom system running Centos 7.8.2003 (3.10.0-1127.8.2.el7.x86_64). I have install igb driver and I got the following message at boot :

[ 2.244985] igb 0000:02:00.0: The NVM Checksum Is Not Valid
[ 2.295118] igb: probe of 0000:02:00.0 failed with error -5

Command "lspci -v" shows :

Kernel modules: igb

whereas other interface have the following line "Kernel driver in use: e1000e" 


The component is not loaded and the network interface is not available.

When I remove and reload the module it works (rmmod igb; modprobe igb; ifup <ifname>) and I got "Kernel driver in use: igb"

I have try the following version of the driver :



- 5.3.6

Could you please tell me what to do to correctly load the driver at boot ?

Thank you
