PCIe Express Drivers on Windows Server 2008
« on: March 04, 2012, 14:04:16 »
The .exe installer will fail when you try to install the driver for the PCIe card on a Win 2008 server.
You need to install drivers manually:
- go to Device Manager under control panel to find the PCIe Serial and Parallel (Parallel on Rev-A boards Only) ports
    with the yellow exclamation symbols.
- right click on them one at a time and select option to install drivers.
- select options to install manually (not from the web) and from a known location.
- on the screen for the known location browse to the CD under drivers - PN1170 (Rev-A for Rev-A boards)
    and then the 32 bit or 64 bit versions based on you system and the drivers should
    install fine.
