Boot drivers require configuration changes, error message

I received my HL-15 Fully Built & Burned In
I installed: ASUS Hyper M.2 X16 PCIe 4.0 X4 Expansion Card, into PCIe 3.0 x16 (CPU slot 6)
I installed: Dual 2X NVME M.2 AHCI to PCIE Express 3.0 Gen3 X8 Card, into 1 PCIe 3.0 x8 ( CPU slot 3)
I changed North bridge CPU configuration for IOU2 and IOU1 from Auto to x4x4x4x4

This resulted in allowing me to see all 6 NVMe drives individually.
TrueNAS was installed on the Dual NVMe card SSDs in a mirror. Booting into TrueNAS successfully.
However, I am now receiving an error during bootup stating “one or more boot drivers require configuration changes.” (see attached pic)
I have checked the Driver Health page and attempted to change the Link Speed from Auto to 10Gbps. Unfortunately, these sections are grayed out and unselectable.
I’m not sure how to fix this.
This stalls the boot up sequence during each reboot, requiring user interaction to proceed.
Notably, both SFP+ NICs are populated and functional in truenas with 10Gbe throughput via iperf3
Any help would be appreciated


Hi @Alash5,
Take a look at this post:
Rocky Linux and Houston UI - Troubleshooting and where to report S/W and H/W issues - #8 by orix.

Basically the onboard Nic’s IOU1 (II0 PCIe Br2) need an x4x4x8 to work


That was the solution! Thank you for the assistance.
