    PCI Express 1.0 card in 2.0 socket: is it possible to get those working?




      I've SR1630HGP server with S3420GPLC motherboard which have PCI Express 2.0 sockets. Also we've got Intel® PRO/1000 PT Quad Port Server Adapter which is PCI Express 1.0a.


      The NIC is not being started/visible by OS (Linux lspci). I was unable to find the compatibility information in the net besides that PCI-e 1.1 card would work in PCI-e 2.0 socket.


      So the question is: are those two compatible? Why? If yes, how to get them be friends?
