Can the PCIe interface provided in (G)MCH Intel Q35 chipset be connected to any device(belonging to other class) other than Graphics card(display)? In the document as well as the interface diagram, it is shown as a pcie graphics slot. Now if it is not possible to connect other class device, can i connect the device to the PCIe interface provided on the ICH(9) chipset device.?
Please reply to this as soon as possible.
Also i wanted to know how the BIOS interacts with the PCIe device. Any pointer to resources reg this would be grateful.
