Hi Anand

Did You enable the pcie hotplug driver (pciehp)
One can do it adding the next options to the /boot/grub/menu.lst
pciehp.pciehp_force=1 pciehp.pciehp_debug=1
(example of my menu.lst: kernel        /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-28-generic
root=UUID=330631e1-99a3-46d3-bf52-f4ca23c6b6ef ro pciehp.pciehp_force=1
pciehp.pciehp_debug=1 acpi=off noapic console=tty0 console=ttyS0 quiet )

so You can see the pciehp outputs in /var/log/kern.log

regards

Ludwig
