I tried to switch their places on PCI slots, it did not help.

I have a customer who purchased 5 HDS-FI785D-M01 Fusion cards, he thinks he is having a driver issue (I am getting third party information on this). I saw that it was an issue at one time anyway since it was posted but the link is dead.

Can you send me a direct link to these FusionIO drivers please…?
