Installing new USB PCI card into Netfinity 7000 M10


I am trying to install a new usb2 pci card into an IBM Netfinity 7000 M10 server and i seem to be having little success

i have plugged it into various different slots and put the little flap that turns the power off down and the power light for that slot will not come on.

this server has recently been reformatted with windows 2003 and i cannot work out for the life of me why it will not work

i have tried the card in my normal pc and it works so it is not that

any ideas would be greatly appreciated

What you might want to try is installing the drivers first. Make sure that they are Windows 2003 drivers for your server and then install the hardware. When the computer is booted up, it should find the new hardware and install the drivers. You may have to point to the drivers when you boot into windows if it doesn't automatically detect them.
