"Flash is too small" BootUtil

Hello, I have a NIC I'm having trouble with. I've got a "Intel 10 Gigabit XF SR Server Adapter EXPX9501AFXSR". My OS throwing errors on boot regarding "EEPROM Checksum is not valid" and "IFDI_ATTACH_PRE failed 5" See images attached. 

I figured the best way to resolve the issue would be to flash the firmware again, so I attempted to run BootUtil versions as old as 22.10(oldest available) and they error out with "Flash is too small". I know this must be incorrect because I've used BootUtil to flash this before. Is there any way to force a flash?

 

Thanks

Paul
