Plug N Play errors after firmware updates

After using the Life-cycle controller on a Dell R710 I got this error. Also the server would not boot as it could not find the RAID controller.

The fix was to disable the ROM option, highlighted below for all non on-board Broadcom NICs. In my case there where eight to configure as there where 2 quad port PCI-e cards.
