I have an ASUS X99-WS/IPMI motherboard with dual Intel I210-AT Gigabit LAN Controllers onboard. When attempting to install 11.1 U4 from a USB stick the first network controller igb0 appears to be configured correctly but the subsequent controller igb1 fails with an Invalid MAC address error. I have attached a picture of the screen to provide more information. I am intending to use both controllers as I need to connect to two different networks. Any help to resolve this would be appreciated.

I had unfortunately already updated the BIOS to the latest version prior to attempting the installation. After my initial post I tried to install CentOS to see what it reported. It installed with no issues and executing 'ip addr' reports the MAC addresses of the Intel controllers as....

...which according to https://macvendors.com/ are assigned to ASUSTek COMPUTER INC. which would seem logical given the motherboard.
