Some motherboards may not automatically recognize the PCIe Card Version. This will cause the system to try and boot the PC with the PCIe card possibly set to the incorrect version, thus inhibiting the PC from booting up.
In the case of the ASUS Z270H motherboard, it will assume all PCIe cards are V3. However, the version of the PCIe-1433 is V1.1. The PCIe needs to be manually downgraded to fix this. Go into the BIOS of the PC and find the correct setting and ensure it is set to the right version for the PCIe card.
The PCIe-1433 is electrically a x4 card.
For the ASUS Z270H Motherboard, the following slots can be used:
• PCIe_x16/x8_1 (Electrically a x16 (x8 if PCIe_x8_2 is used)
• PCIe_x8_2 (Electrically a x8)
Note: Leave the PCIe_x2_3 slot unused.
- Supermicro X11SCZ-F/Q Motherboard:
In the case of the Supermicro X11SCZ-F/Q motherboard, the BIOS settings for the PCIe-6374 card default to AUTO. By changing the BIOS setting to GEN1, the PC was able to boot.
- Spectra MI996VF-9400 Motherboard:
In the case of the Spectra MI996VF-9400 motherboard, the BIOS settings for the PCIe-6351 and PCIe-6509 cards default to AUTO. By changing the BIOS setting to GEN1, the PC was able to boot.
In general, NI recommends contacting the PC's manufacturer to verify if the PCIe board can be used with their motherboard based on its specifications.
