I received an X10SDV in the post just yesterday and I am expecting a X10DRi during the week. I'll see if I can make it work in one of these boards. I'll move the card around in the X10SRi to try different slots in case it makes any difference. I can see in the BIOS that bifurcation is supported only in some slots and not all (just in case it matters)

EDIT: Booting with Ubuntu Live didn't make any difference, can't find the card in lspci.

There is something interesting I noticed. When I first installed the card I powered the machine on and even the mobile rack was dead i.e. no lights no nothing. When I booted the system with a Fedora live image the mobile rack woke up and I can see 1 solid green light next to the disk (i.e. disk found, no activity). Since then it has stayed like that. It is as if something "woke it up" (totally unscientific observation haha)
