I have a client with a HP ProLiant DL320 G6 server that crashed after displaying "Uncorrectable PCI Express Error (Embedded device, Bus 0, Device 1, Function 0, Error status 0x00000020).
HP Advisory  c02499654 reports this problem with Intel Xeon 5600-Series Processors but this server has E5505 processor so the solution in the advisory does not apply.  Any thoughts from anyone?

Almost guaranteed to be a faulty motherboard. http://tinyurl.com/kj76mvp can help to tell what chip it is but since it's an embedded device you can't change it anyway except by replacing the system board.

HP was not interested in my problem since the server was out of warranty so I ended up going to the customer site to inspect.  The server had been reported as down but was actually powered up.  I downed the server and after I reseated the PCI-e riser and the P410 storage controller I powered it back up. The admins were then able to log in and perform normal operations.  They have been monitoring the system since I left but nothing out of the ordinary has occurred with it.  I also purchased a replacement system board as a precaution.
Thanks for the help.
