Hardware Installation
General instructions for installing the card are provided
below. Since the design of computer cases and
motherboards vary, refer to your computer’s reference
manual for further information, if needed.
Static Electricity Discharge may permanently damage
your system. Discharge any static electricity build up in
your body by touching your computer’s case for a few
seconds. Avoid any contact with internal parts and
handle cards only by their external edges.

Turn OFF the power to your computer and any
other connected peripheral devices. Unplug the
computer's power cord.
Remove the computer cover and install the card in
an available PCI Express slot.

Connect an available 4-pin power connector from
the system power supply to the Power Connector
on the DP FireWire 800 PCIe board (See Figure 1 on
