    Trying to setup DH87MC desktop board with NEC USB 2.0 PCI adapter as WHCK client machine but it hangs during Windows 8.1 startup

      Summary:

      Trying to setup DH87MC desktop board with NEC USB 2.0 PCI add-on adapter as WHCK client machine but system hangs during Windows 8.1 startup.  This problem happens anytime I have a PCI adapter plugged in.   No such problem when I remove USB 2.0 PCI adapter.

       

      system configuration:

      motherboard:    Intel DH87MC

      bios:                MCH8710H.86A.0047.2013.0606.1508

      processor:        Intel Core i7-4771

      ram:                 32GB (corsair CML16GXM2A1600C9 4x8GB)     

      addon-1:           Renesas USB 3.0 PCIx (D720202)

      addon-2:           ADS Tech NEC USB 2.0 PCI (D720101GJ) -- USBIF certified

      os:                   Windows 8.1 Enterprise 64bit

       

      Issue:

      Any time I try to boot or install Windows 8.1 Enterprise 64bit OS -- it hangs at OS startup screens.

       

      Please note that I'm able to boot into Windows 8.1 Enterprise 64bit OS and also able to install fresh Windows 8.1 Enterprise 64bit OS - when I remove add-on2 which is ADS Tech NEC USB 2.0 PCI card!

       

      Tried other USB 2.0 PCI card and also by having it plugged to other PCI slots that are available - but no luck (system hangs at Windows 8.1 startup screen).

       

      note: same add-on pci and pcix - works fine with no problem in intel desktop board DZ77SL-50K in which Windows 8.1 boots like a charm and able to run WHCK tests.

       

      Any help in getting this issue resolved is much appreciated!
