-====== Burning gPXE into Broadcom BCM57xx-based cards ====== 
  
-<​referback>​This page is part of the [[:​romburning|ROM-burning]] tutorial.</​referback>​ 
- 
-The Broadcom Diagnostic Utility set allows you to update the expansion ROM images in Broadcom BCM57xx gigabit network cards (and rebranded Broadcom cards such as the HP NC7771). 
- 
-===== Preparing the ROM image ===== 
- 
-Copy the gPXE ROM image (e.g. //​bin/​pci_0e11_00ca.rom//​) to a FAT-formatted floppy disk or USB drive. 
- 
-===== Preparing the tools ===== 
- 
-Download the Broadcom Diagnostics Utility from [[http://​www.broadcom.com/​docs/​driver_download/​570x/​B57udiag-10.53.iso]]. ​ Burn this image to CD using your favourite CD burning method. 
- 
-===== Burning the gPXE ROM ===== 
- 
-Boot from the CD selecting option 1. 
- 
-At the next prompt choose the "​Install to HD using FD setup" option, please note this won't actually install to your HDD without more confirmation 
- 
-At the next screen, choose your language, and then select "Run FreeDOS from CD ROM (return to command prompt)"​ 
- 
-You should now have an X:\ prompt 
- 
-From here change your current working directory to X:​\B57UDIAG\ 
- 
-From here you will want to execute the following command 
-    B67UDIAG.exe -ver 
- 
-You should see something like 
- 
-    X:​\B57UDIAG\>​b57diag.exe -ver

-This shows the list of broadcom cards in the machine. We in this case have only the one card. 
-We want to check the current payload in the card, so we need to run the following ​   ​ 
- 
- 
-    X:​\B57UDIAG\>​b57diag.exe -c 0 -dir

-    ​ 
-This lists the current NRAM filesystem on the card. Please note the PXE rom on this card is already a gPXE rom, however the same process holds true for replacing the rom 
- 
-In order to burn the rom we need to run the following 
-    A:​\>​b57diag.exe -c 0 -pxe c:​\tg3-hp.rom
