I just recieved a x8 to x16 adapter that i thought would work with my slots (should of looked first, thoght the normal pci slot was a x8 :@)

Is there anyone in england that has a x1 adapter and would be willing to trade?

Do you know that "normal PCI" is not the same as PCIe x1 ?

Yeah I am confused about what which slot you are looking to use?

PCIe x1 slot (which is not a "normal PCI slot")?

or

a normal PCI slot (which will require a different and significantly more expensive adapter than a PCIe x1)?

All you need to do is cut the end off of the x1 slot. the x8 adapter will work in it

It can be done.  The other option is to cut the "fingers" of your PCIex8 extender with a dremel tool so only the PCIex1 "fingers" remain. Wrap the cut portion in electrical tape.

A mistake there only ruins a $10 extender. Smiley
