There is a reset circuit on the that controls the complicated power
sequencing. It is possible that your BIOS is too fast and configures the PCI
space during this powerup sequence. At that time, the HDE is not properly

It is possible to shorten this sequence a bit, but for that you need to
exchange a SMD capacitor on the HDE board.
