    DG33FB PCIe x 16 - can a SAS card be used in this?

    manoverboard12

      Hi,

       

      I have acquired this motherboard,and have tested it with a windows install successfullly. Also updated the BIOS to the latest version.

       

      The intention was to install a SAS card (LSI 1068e      LSI SAS1068E) which has been tested in a newer machine recently. When it's installed, the system does not boot at all, not into BIOS or the SAS card BIOS.

       

      I suspect this is because the PCIe x 16 interface is only for video cards, but don't know for sure. Please help.

       

      Regards,

      Martin

       

      Edit: I tried pinging the network card after adding the SAS card in case the system had booted without any screen activity, but there was no reply so it is definitely not reaching the bios
