X540-T2 UEFI only booting

I've come across an odd issue it seems.  I recently upgraded hardware to get in-line with the Windows 11 requirements, but when I enable UEFI only booting, the system boots right back to the BIOS.  I usually get 1 or 2 screens about booting from the network through the X540 card, but it seems that when the system BIOS is set to UEFI only booting, this card stops the system from booting.

 

Does anyone know if this card is required to have legacy BIOS booting enabled to make it work?  Or if there's a way to force it under UEFI only?  That's the only requirement keeping me from being Windows 11 ready.

Hello castertr0y357,


Thank you for posting on Intel Ethernet Communities. 


Can we ask you to provide us a photo of your Network card's markings both front and back so that we can validate if you are using a genuine intel NIC or a 3rd party OEM. Kindly refer to the link below for reference.

Also can we request for you to provide us an SSU log so that we can also have a look on your system. 


Please follow the steps to generate an SSU (System Support Utility) log below:

1. Download the Intel® System Support Utility and save the application to your system.

2. Open the application and click Scan to see system and device information. The Intel® System Support Utility defaults to the Summary View on the output screen following the scan. Click the menu where it says summary to change to Detailed View.

3. To save your scan, click Next and click Save. You can save the file to any accessible location on your computer.


Note: Please put a tick on "Everything" when scanning the log
