Kickstart an R610 from a 10Gb card

we have bought a number of R610 with dual X520-T2 cards.
I'd like to kickstart them with RHEL5.8 from the 10Gb interfaces.
At the moment I'm stuck at the fact that they don't appear in the bios
at all. I tried to upgrade the firmware using the Linux version
contained in PREBOOT.EXE. Everything seems to complete correctly but
when I reboot the machine I can't see the interfaces anywhere. I can
only see the embedded ones. Below is the output of bootutil64e after a
rerun today. Do you know if there is any problem with the Linux utility?
or if I'm missing some vital information?
Thanks a lot for any help
