If that's meant to be Ultrium 920 SAS tape drive any dumb SAS HBA will work, and I'm sure there are lots of PCIe x1 ones about, HP's recommendation of using the E200 is duff info.

Yes, so long as it's not a graphics-only pcie x16 slot which you find on some workstations. What's it going into? If it's an HP server they sometimes use oversized sockets anyway so a physical x16 slot may be electrically x8 anyway.

I totally agree with you, but my server 2012 didn´t recognize the card when I plug it on PCIe 16x. My Pc isn´t  HP,  My motherboard is DH61WW.  What should I do ?

I think it's a graphics-only PCIe x16 slot (PEG) on that motherboard although there may be a BIOS setting to switch between PEG and normal PCIe mode. If not then unless the x1 socket is open at the back so you can put the x8 card in it with clearance for the pins that don't connect you're out of luck, you'll need an x1 card or a different motherboard. What are you trying to connect to the SAS end?
