Hey all,

I've been trying to migrate my machine at work to Win 2008 Server R2 64-bit and am having some trouble getting a PCI graphics adapter working. Regardless of which PCI slot I plug the card into, I see a resource problem in Device Manager indicating either a "The device cannot start. (Code 10)" or "The device cannot find enough free resources to use... (Code 12)" issue with the PCI standard PCI-to-PCI bridge component. I have tried modifying IRQ assignments in the BIOS to ensure no conflicts, but nothing seems to help. Here's the system configuration:

Dell PowerEdge 840, A05 Bios
Dell Perc 5/i RAID Controller + 4-disk Raid-0 array
Onboard Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet
Matrox Millenium P690 PCI graphics adapter
Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise 64-bit

The same hardware configuration was working fine on Windows Server 2003 Enterprise SP2, so I'm assuming this is some sort of bug with the PCI driver for 2008. I really need to get this issue resolved, so if anyone has any suggestions I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

Still having this problem. I've tried updating the system BIOS and other drivers with no luck. Anyone have any suggestions?
