    Comments about HP Thunderbolt-2 PCIe 1-Port I/O Card:

    I bought this as soon as it was available, and had a heck of a time getting it to mount my drives. The computer saw the card, and and card saw the drive, but the drive (though connected) wouldn't show up in my computer. I had an error in the device manager stating that it couldn't find resources for this device. After some back and forth with HP and some searching i found a driver on the Lacie site for using their thunderbolt drives on a windows box. Once i installed that, everything was good. I have since added a g drive thunderbolt, and it appears to use the same driver..as it hooked up without an issue.
