(3 stars) Lots of tricks to use

By:
1st installed and system(s) just came up with black screen: no system BIOS, errors or "Control-M" messages. BIOS MUST be set to PCIe Gen2 and legacy boot to get anywhere and then I still did not get a card BIOS setup message (Control-M for card setup). Accidentally accessed by hitting the keys during startup.

(5 stars) PEXMSATA3422 is an asset.
