When you install a Type 8 PCIe device such as the PCI/PCI-X to PCI Express Bridge on a Windows-based computer, the device does not function. Additionally, you see a yellow triangle error that contains an exclamation mark  bang  in Device Manager. When you double-click the error, you receive the following error message:

This device cannot start. (Code 10)


This behavior is by design in Windows.


To work around this behavior, replace the PCIe device, such as the PCI/PCI-X to PCI Express Bridge, by using a PCIe device that is not Type 8.
