With older PC machines, this is nothing special. :-)

Sometimes mainboards are very picky about which cards work
in which slots. Sometimes you need to use the function
"Reset configuration data" in the BIOS so the change of
cards will be recognized and properly communicated to
the OS. The BIOS setting "PnP OS installed" might also
have an effect.

I once had a machine with on-board SCSI that would accept
the intended set of PCI expansion cards only in one (!)
specific order.



PS.
This is why you should use Adaptec SCSI controletti. ;-)
