NI MXI-Express BIOS compatibility software works around common BIOS limitations by working with new MXI-Express hardware. Please refer to the two KnowledgeBases noted in the More Information section to understand if your computer and MXI Express hardware are applicable for this software.

Install NI MXI-Express BIOS compatibility software if your Windows XP, Vista, 7-based computer does not boot when connected to your PXI(e) chassis through MXI-Express, or if Windows does not properly discover your devices. (That is, it shows yellow exclamation points with Code 12 or Code 31 errors in Windows Device Manager, despite drivers for all devices being installed.) Both situations often are due to BIOS programming errors in PCI Express device configuration. To use this software, you need a MXI-Express device that supports Mode 1 operation. Refer to the attached Readme.html file for more information.

Do not install NI MXI-Express BIOS compatibility software if your computer connects without error to your PXI or PXI Express chassis using MXI-Express. In this case, installing the software needlessly increases the system complexity and may cause errors.
