USB 3.0 PCI card in HP Pavilion questions
Posted on 2014-02-04
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?
