ELX550AT2 PHY failed to be recognized on the PCIe Gen2&3


x550 functionality on PCIe :

This device is integrated into my own designed board. The board design has followed Intel design recommendations. 

Intel device is not recognized on the PCIE , on board see clocks & PCI signals for a moment and then silent

PCIe interface was checked with another non Intel product without any issue. what can be possible reasons ? What debug option are available ? Any known errata relating to this phenomena ?
