Ah, that at least changes some of the assumptions (and places to look for). Cause the error message clearly say the bnx2x module gets loaded, then the kernel tries to load libcrc32c as well (because then bnx2x module uses a function from that) but fails. Assuming you used the netboot installer, I looked in its initrd and saw that module. But maybe there is something wrong on the installed system. Could you try a:

gunzip -c /boot/initrd.img-$(uname -r)|cpio -t|egrep 'bnx2x|libcrc32'

I am wondering whether the initramfs contains only the bnx2x module but not the libcrc32c one. And whether the network driver tries to initialize before the real root fs is mounted. But if both modules are missing, that would be a false lead. At least the boot seems to serialize on that module being loadable. Just not sure yet why.
