I found some discussion of card compatibility here:
You should be able to hit CTRL-B a couple times on the first serial
port during power up to get to a ">>>" prompt, then do something
>>> INIT FROM ETHER IMAGE WWENG2 UPDATE FLASH DELAY 0
I had some trouble getting to the ">>>" prompt successfully, but
once there, had no trouble netbooting and updating the flash.
