RE: Optiplex 7010 SFF no POST when network adapter in PCI-E x4 slot

The 390 does not have PCI-E 3.0 slots.  There is an inherent incompatibility with PCI-E 3.0 and older versions of cards.   This is because the power profile AND the clock speed of the bus does not DOWNGRADE to 1.0 or 2.0  speed.   If you need 802.11 Dual band use a USB Wifi Adapter like the

EIDEMAX AC600 usb adapter.

RE: Optiplex 7010 SFF no POST when network adapter in PCI-E x4 slot

I have the same problem. In my case I am using a totally different network card, but the results are identical. My card is an Intel® Gigabit ET2 Quad Port Server Adapter. PCIe v2.0.

Speed & Slot Width: 2.5 GT/s, x4 Lane

Controller: Intel 82576

RE: Optiplex 7010 SFF no POST when network adapter in PCI-E x4 slot

Just to verify, you are inserting the card in the #16 PCIe x4 slot 2? The slot closest to the #15 internal buzzer?

Yes, that is the slot.
