I am trying to install one and I do not seem to be able to do it. I have an HP xw8400 box and an empty PCI Express x16 slot in it (I think - that is a PCI Express, which this controller is meant to be using). Here is the manual, see p. 71, it is slot 4.
The system should recognize that new hardware was installed and at that point I can point to the drivers. I am on Windows 7 64 by the way, for which Silicon Image does provide drivers. As I understand this is also when one can flash the BIOS?
My problem is the computer does not see any new hardware even though it seems to be in the correct slot (or not), etc.
