How do i connect Mini-PCI express with PCI-X1 cards?

Mini-PCI express slots are same as PCI-X1 cards, most of you think that is true. But for some cards its not, because in 90’s the specification was revised and there is some BUS issues involved.

1. To power the mini-pci express cards you have to put external ATX power which can feed 12volt, 5volt (check the amps too)

2. When the ATX power is supplied it will boot but because of incorrect BUS issues it may not be recognized by OS/BIOS.

So, finally the best move is to go straight PCI-X1 slots. If you have solution post here your research.
