OK i see that is "Adapter for IBM System x" but was sold as Intel

trying intc_sw_nic_v20.3-cd_anyos_32-64.iso without success (firmware 4.50)

intc_sw_nic_v20.0-cd_anyos_32-64.iso (4.42) worked fine

Hi Szym,

Thank you for the updaet. Try to get the firmware from IBM, the available firmware on our website is here https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/24769/NVM-Update-Utility-for-Intel-Ethernet-Converged-Netw... Download NVM Update Utility for Intel® Ethernet Converged Network Adapter XL710 & X710 Series but it is recommended to uset he OEM version if you are using an OEM NIC.
