USB 3.0 PCI card in HP Pavilion questions

I have an HP Pavilion HPE-410f desktop running ESXi 5.1, which has Windows 2012, 2000 Server, and XP Pro VMs. I installed a Startech 4 port USB 3.0 PCIe card (PEXUSB3S4). The card is not recognized by the ESXi OS.  However, when I boot and go into the BIOS, I do not see the USB ports in the BIOS screens. I plugged a Seagate external drive into one of the HP's built-in ports and I see it when I power up and go into the setup screen. It shows on one of the ports as external.  When I plug the Seagate into one of the USB ports on the Startech card, I do not see it.

On HP's support page for the 410F, there are no BIOS updates.

Should I see the Seagate drive somewhere in the setup screen's USB ports section? Am I missing something?

Nope.

>>  Am I missing something?

Have a look at http://www.tinkertry.com/usb3passthru/  This might help.

Thank you for the reply. On the Advanced settings display I get "Host does not support passthru configuration".

Check you have Virtualization turned on in the BIOS.  I don't know if this motherboard supports Virtualization or not.

There is a setting called Virtualization Technology that is set to enabled.

Are you getting a message about VMDirectPath being not supported?

Anyway have a look at this thread http://www.vm-help.com/esx40i/VMDirectPath/fix_config_issues.php#disable_boot
