Hi Dominik, Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.

It's the same with this ASRock Rack board. I've set the oprom to legacy for
PCIE slot 1, but it doesn't seem to make any difference. I've also tried
other slots but that doesn't make a difference either.

The only thing I can't find, is any option relating to ARI. Do you recall
at all what the option was called? I think the supermicro and asrock boards
are pretty similar when it comes to options, but maybe this board is
missing ARI.

Also I have ACS enabled but that doesn't help either.

Thanks I will do that.
