Does this sound like a bad nic ?

I was trying to cold ignite a older workstation (unknown prior state of
stability), but when executing a 'sea lan install' at the boot prompt, it comes
back 'no devices found'. Using the _same_ data cable I am able to find the
ignite server on a different workstaion. (speed was set to Auto-detect on both)

1) Does this sound like a bad nic to you ?

2) The nic is on the system board. Would the system board need to be replaced
to fix the problem ?

Thanks in advance for any help/insight !

You might want to check your firmware revision.
2.0 is the latest revision which to fix some lan boot problems on the box.

Go to the patch website:http://us-support2.external.hp.com/

Once you login choose individual patches, then choose firmware patches, Then
click on the cpu box & click on search. This will list all the latest firmware
patches available for the different product lines. You can then choose the one
for j2240 and read the information on the different revisions.

To see what firmware revision your box is at:
shut the system down and b4 it boots entrupt it by hitting any key. From the
main menu go into CO then hit FW to see the revision of firmware.
