Unsupported PCI card detected

Hello,
I am installing an HP NC7770 PCI-X card into an ML 350 G4 server. When the server boots up, it gives me the error "Unsupported PCI card detected" i have tried several cards and slots and the same error arises. Does anyone know why this is? I know the card is compatible with these servers. Thanks

Re: Unsupported PCI card detected

There is a specific chipset incompatibility between the NC7770 ASIC and some motherboard chipsets. The incompatibility is bad enough that the ROM was programmed to not even allow the NC7770 to be enabled.

The NC7771's chipset does not have the same issue.
