More on Firmware Recovery Mode for item (13) above:

When a device is in Firmware Recovery mode it will not pass traffic or allow any configuration; you can only
attempt to recover the device's firmware. A device will enter Firmware Recovery mode if it detects a problem
that requires the firmware to be reprogrammed.

Resolving Firmware Recovery Mode Issues:

If your device is in Firmware Recovery mode you can restore it to factory defaults using the latest NVM
Update Package. Download the latest NVM Update Package from your vendor's support website and follow
the instructions in it.

*** NOTES:

- Before initiating device recovery, the integrity of the host operating system, device drivers
and firmware utilities must be verified and reinstalled if necessary. Fully functional operating
system, device drivers and tools are required for device recovery.

- AC power cycle your system even if the instructions do not indicate that an AC power cycle is required.
A power cycle is required to enable the device to restore and reload critical device settings to enable recovery.
To perform an AC power cycle, do the following:

a. Shut down the system if it is powered up.
b. Unplug all AC power cords from the system.
c. Leave the AC power cords unplugged for 15 seconds to allow the system power supply to discharge completely.
d. Plug in AC power cords to the system.

- Firmware Recovery Mode Errors and Messages:

When a device is in Firmware Recovery mode, the device drivers and preboot software and utilities may log or
display messages such as the following:

a. Firmware recovery mode detected. Limiting functionality.
Refer to the Intel(R) Ethernet Adapters and Devices User Guide for details on firmware recovery mode.
b. Firmware recovery mode detected. Initialization failed.
c. Firmware recovery mode detected. Limiting functionality.
d. PXE-E0C: Firmware recovery mode detected. Initialization failed.
