My system BIOS gives a "No memory" error with a DC P3700 PCIe drive installed

I have an older Intel system (~5-6 years) that has a revision 2.0 PCIe slot. The system will not boot to BIOS & beeps indicating a "No memory" error when my P3700 is installed. The latest BIOS is dated July 2013 so I have to assume it should recognize this drive. The P3700 specs indicate that it's revision 3.0 but is backwards compatible. The OS is Win 7 but it errors when power is turned on. Any ideas why?

Thanks, Bob

I am sorry for the delay on coming back to you.

The P3xxx drives require PCIe 3.0 so it will have problems to work in the DX58SO.

This is documented in the Product Brief under "Interface" on page 2.
