Intel X710-DA4 and Dell R420

Hrvoje Popovski
Hi all,

i just wanted to warn people not to buy X710-DA4 and try to insert it in
Dell R420. You can insert it in Dell R620 just fine.

On other hand don't put chinese X710-DA2 or something like that in Dell
servers (tried on r420 and r620), because UEFI panics and won't boot. It
works on IBM x3550 M4 server..

X710-DA2 that breaks Dell UEFI:
