When you hot plug an Intel 1000P PCI Express network adaptor into a Windows Server 2003 computer, you are prompted to restart your computer. Device Manger shows the second PCI-PCI bridge on the network adaptor with a yellow exclamation mark.
You can safely IGNORE this message. DO NOT restart your computer.
NOTE: The second PCI-PCI bridge is not used, so you can ignore the yellow exclamation mark. If desired, uninstall it:
• Open Device Manager (Devmgmt.msc).
• Right-click the second PCI-PCI bridge deivce and press Uninstall.
• Press Yes.
