USB PCIe Host Card does not work on new setup


Hello Everyone

I have upgraded my PC CPU and motherboard from i7-11700f &TUF B560M to i7-12700k & Z690M Plus D4.

I have a Vantec 5-port USB 3.2 Gen2x2(20Gbps) with 2C and 3A PCIe Host Card moved from my old to the new setup. And this card does not work on the new setup.

I put this card in the second PCIe x16 slot both the old and new setup. And I tried to connect different power cables and switch to PCIe slot 1 (slot 1 is for GPU, so slot 1 is 100% working).

I am able to see this hub card in BIOS but now Windows OS. (In OS, it has an error code 45).

Vender says there may be a BIOS configuration and new firmware need to flash to the card.

In BIOS, I can only change the PCIe speed to Gen 2/3/4, and I do not have the old setup anymore.

Does anyone have any idea how I can solve this problem?
