I apologize for accidentally posting this in the "other" thread...

 

Hi all,

 

First thanks for all the amazing work. Is there anyone working on getting the PCI slot in Dell docking station to show? My hardware is a D620 laptop.

 

Thank you again!

does the one on the D620 work for you?

 

Hi, I'm not sure what you mean. The D620 is a laptop and only has a miniPCIe slot internally.

 

I am using a Dell docking station which has a 32-bit, 33-MHz PCI slot. With the D620 "docked" OSX will boot fine, but it does not recognise or see the PCI slot in the dock. If I boot WinXP, that sees the PCI card in the dock's PCI slot. I can use Linux to dump the PCI IDs if that will help someone -- I suspect the dock is using a PCI-to-PCI bridge to support its PCI slot.

 

Thank you!

To any and all,

 

If someone is capable or interested in adding support, I would ship you a docking station that can accept a PCI card for Dell. The dock can be used on most recent Dells (Centrino to Core-2 for certain).

 

Thank you!
