Question about Dell PCI-X Riser Card for PowerEdge R200/ 850/ 860 Servers

1 Answer

If we use the server without PCI-PCIe Raiser card, it can boot into the OS. However, it cannot boot into the OS when we install the PCI-PCIE Raiser Card into the sever, and it alerts message error as below: DELL POWER EDGE SERVER R200 - LIGHTS: A- ORANGE B- GREEN C- ORANGE D- ORANGE - ERROR: PCIe Training Error: Embedded I/O Bridge Device 4. Please kindly help us for this case.

The problem seems to be 2 things..

1.) firstly send the boot priority in the bios to HDD 0 or the harddrive connected directly to the board with the os.

2.) second thing, the Raiser Card, if it has raid Harddrrives connected via the ext. one of the raid harddrives connected to it is malfunctioning , remove and disable one at a time until u find the correct one. Or it could be the Card itself is malfunctioning.

I'm guessing here that you have a IDE card connected to the Raiser card with raid harddrives on it, One of them is malfunctioning.

Ml350 g5


Most current high-performance graphics cards (GPUs) are PCI Express (PCIe) cards. The others use the "legacy" standard known as AGP.

ML350 G5 has PCIe slots, but they are x4 or at most x8 variety: most high-performance GPUs require a PCIe x16 slot. Of course, PCIe cards are supposed to work with lower-bandwidth slots too, but that limits the performance of the card. I would not expect high-performance GPU manufacturers to do much testing with limited-performance configurations, so you would easily find yourself in the land of "unsupported".

PCI-X is a faster/wider version of PCI for servers: I don't know of any common high-performance graphics card that would use a PCI-X slot.

PCI-X is backwards compatible with plain old PCI, but I would not call any PCI graphics card "high performance" today.

Most high-performance GPUs also require more current than a standard PCIe slot can supply. That necessitates an extra power feed from the PSU to the card, but such a power feed is not often available in server-style machines.

Trying to convert a rack-mount server into a graphics monster machine is like trying to adapt a Formula-1 car for a gravel-road rally: different roles call for different designs.

Hi I have a supermicro x8sti Server Board inside


Basically you have two choices for installation of video card:
1. To purchase small form factor PCIe card suitable for installation on 1U server chasis or
2. Purchase PCI express riser card and to install most full-sized PCI Express cards (Check this link for PCI Riser )

What kind of graphic cards work with Pvm900m


http://www.mercury-pc.com/product-detail.php?link=p-mainboards&subtitle=Mainboard&productid=748

Specifications > Expansion Slots > PCI Express x16

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express

PCI EXPRESS 2.0

"PCIe 2.0 motherboard slots are fully backward compatible with PCIe v1.x cards. PCIe 2.0 cards are also generally backward compatible with PCIe 1.x motherboards, using the available bandwidth of PCI Express 1.1. Overall, graphic cards or motherboards designed for v2.0 will work with the other being v1.1 or v1.0a."

-> PCIe 2.0 graphics cards are ALSO -> Backward Compatible <- with PCIe 1.0, or 1.1 motherboards.......

-> Using the available bandwidth of PCI Express 1.1

[ PCI Express 2.0 = 500MegaByte per Second, per lane data rate.
PCI Express 1.0 and 1.1 = 250MB/s, per lane data rate.

PCI Express 2.0 = 5.0GigaByte per Second transfer rate
PCI Express 1.0 and 1.1 = 2.5GB/s transfer rate

Will you notice? NO

How to install Pci-e 16x in a pci slot


Do not put a PCI-e card in a PCI slot. It will not fit and the card won't work. The PCI card has 58 or 60 pins on each side with the slot (62 pins would be present if not for the key notches for alignment). PCIe 16x cards have 32 pins.

There are adapters to put a PCI card in a PCIe 1x slot (will fit any PCIe slot) or a PCIe1x card in a PCI slot. See http://www.amfeltec.com/index.php for a sample of the adapters. For the PCIe 16x cards, you need a new motherboard.

If you are placing a PCI-e 16x card in a PCIe 16x slot or a PCI card in a PCI slot, then open the side of your case. Locate the matching slot (remove the current card) or an empty slot depending on your motherboard. Depending on the case, you may need to remove a screw to remove the old card. Wiggle the card straight up to remove it. If you are putting in a new card, you will need to remove the cover from the slot. (For some larger PCIe 16x cards, you need to remove the adjacent slot cover as well.) Some covers just pull straight up or pry a lever up and then pull; for others, you will need to use a screwdriver to break the cover out. Make sure there is sufficient room near the slot for the card. (You may need to move other cards around.)

Then line up the card so that the back of the card will fit into the opening and the contacts on the bottom of the card are above the center of the slot. Firmly press the card down into the slot without changing the alignment. You may need to wiggle it (press down on the back and front, alternatingly). Then make sure the card is fully seated. Attach the addtional power cord from your power supply, if needed for a PCIe 16x card.

Close your case. Then if this is a new video card, turn on the computer and enter the BIOS (press F1, F2, F10, Esc depending on the machine). Disable the on-board video. Then reboot the computer and load the drivers you need for the card.

I hope this helps.

I have the Board ASUS P5VDC-MX. And I wonder that there is no pci-e slot, but in the information there is written:"this board is pci-e (16x) ready".... is it right ? Can i use a pci-e (16x) video...


No, you can't use a PCIe x16 card in any of the slots on the P5VDC-MX board. A PCIe x16 card can't fit into the PCIe x1 slot. Attempting to force a PCIe x16 card into the PCIe X1 slot will break the card or bend the pins. A PCIe x1 card will work in a PCIe x4, x8 or x16 slot, though. Similarly, the AGP and PCI slots are not compatible with the PCIe x16 card design.

I wish that I had better news for you.

I know this is really old, but I had the same problem on my 206m 8584 with a pci-e x1 video card. I had to upgrade bios first, but nothing seemed to change, bios only showed onboard video as option and windows perfectly recognized the exta card. I went to windows video settings, it showed both video, onboard as main and active and extra as inactive, changed the second video to main and active and switched the plug to finally see my enhanced video. Only problem is that bios screen won't show up on pci-e card, so I start seeing something only after one minute :) Hopes this saves someone else some time.

I can't get my board to recognize my ATI Radeon x300 se in the pcie pnp will not even recognize it.


You must enter the bios menu and set the video controller to boot to the PCIe first. Save and exit the bios. The proper orders when installing a PCI-E card is as follows; before you install you’re new video card onto the motherboard. Install the graphics cards software. Than shut down the system. Install the video card. Boot system and enter the bios menu. Go to and open Advance.
Open North Bridge Configuration
See page 4-23 in manual.

Internal Graphics Adapter should be set to [PEG/PCI]
Internal Graphics Mode Select should be set to [Disabled]
PEG Port Control set to [Auto]

Save you're changes and exit the bios. You should be able to boot to you're PCI-E graphics card now.

I need help choosing a video card - part 2


PCI is the older, slower format, PCIe is newer and faster, but your system MUST support PCIe or it won't work.
So easy option is to find if your system supports PCIe and then get whichever is suitable.
