Re: nc550m doesnt show in BIOS

Hi Bhavani,

NC550m requires a minimum of 2 GB of server memory, If this condition fulfills check if card detected during POST, if not do some swapping to confirm if it is failed.

Hi,

According to the document BL465c G7 is not shown as a compatible server with HP NC550m.

According to this document for BL465c G7, NC550m is compatible
http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/13654_div/13654_div.HTML

NC550m is a Type I Adapter, you can try installing this card in Mezzanine connector 1 or 2 slot of this server.

Thanks

Also check in RBSU under..
>PCI Device Enable/Disable
These options enable and disable the embedded and add-in devices.

>PCI Option ROM Enable/Disable
This menu lists all the slots that contain an add-in card with an option ROM.

-right now its on MEZ slot 2. We tried to swap to Mez slot 1 it failed.

-I don't have a problem on OS windows 2008 R2, it can detect and I can team too.

-Its only in BIOS showing as unknown PCI device.

-I logged a case with HP L2 and its already been a week, I just got response once.
