I´m trying to install P212 HP card on my server. But I don´t have PCI 8X, so I´m trying to install on PCIe. When I turn it on I can see the card setup, I can access it and configure the devices. My problem is when windows 2012 server starts I can´t see the card and the device.

If you can see it in device manager as an unknown device, you will have to install it's driver for Windows to be properly able to access it.

You should still check whether you can install the driver. If that doesn't work, your server isn't compatible the the RAID controller.

Connect further...control easier

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.

It should run OK in a PCIe x1, x2 or x4 slot if it's open-ended and there's room for the connector to overhang without fouling. It will also work in a proper PCIe x16 slot but only if it isn't a "graphics only" x16 slot such as you get on PC motherboards. Why are you installing it and what slots do you have available?

Ok, I change PCIe 16 for graphcs only on the setup. My motherboard is intel DH61ww and my OS is windows 2012 server. I´m installing this card for my tape backup HP 920 SAS.
It´s my home test enviroment. Any idea to make it work ?

Always annoying that HP recommend Smart Array controllers with their tape drives where all you really want is a SAS HBA. Even then it's difficult, the only PCIe x1 SAS HBA I've been able to find is Acer TC.32300.008 . Adaptec 6405E is SAS/PCIe x1 but it's a RAID controller nad doesn't support tape. If you find any other PCIe x1 SAS HBAs other than the no longer made ACER one I'd like to know.

Should work in your x16 slot though if there's an option to disable the "graphics only" option. It may be though that as rindi says you haven't installed the drivers for the Smart Array controller.
