The PCI card I am working with does not implement MSI interrupts, but just uses the legacy interrupt pin A.  It's confusing to me that this error is associated with MSI.  Since this behavior is slot-dependent, I figured at first that the error is from another device on the same interrupt line, but I get the same error on several different slots.  There is only one slot where things work as expected.

Thanks for the response,

I can at continue to make progress using the working slot, but I would really like to resolve the issue with the other slots. Does anyone have any idea what to try next?
