I have Dell Power Edge R905 server with Windows 2012 R2 installed. Everything works great until I install Plextor M6e SSD PCIe x2 card. With card inserted into PCIe x4 or PCIe x8 slot, system starts and Windows logo is showing but nothing happen next.

How can I diagnose this problem? How to tell Windows to start without this PCIe disk and enable this disk after system started?

"How to tell Windows to start without this PCIe disk and enable this disk after system started?" I would give Safe Mode a try (press F8 while booting), it usually disables all non-essential drivers, which may allow you to boot. –  WildVelociraptor Jul 25 at 13:46
    
Not working:/ Safe mode hangs... This is strange because this same card in other computer works without problems. –  zielu1 Aug 2 at 11:57
