Default PCI to IDE Card: Replacement or Refund?

I have an ASUS F1A75-V EVO system board, http://usa.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD...M1/F1A75V_EVO/

I bought a
StarTech PCIIDE2 2 Port PCI IDE Controller Adapter Card, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16815158081

With the card in the ASUS system board, the machine will not boot, it doesn't even get to or past UEFI, just a black screen. The OS is Windows 7.

I put the card in an older board, that system boots, but no HDDs connected to the card show up. The HDDs did show up when connected to that board's IDE port. As far as I can tell, the card does not show up in Device Manager. Show Hidden Devices was on. The OS is Windows 8.

In re-reading details on the card, I find:
"Operating Systems Supported - DOS, Windows 95/98/ME/NT 4/2000/XP and Vista."

Should I try a replacement card, or return it for refund, and move on?

Anyone have a suggestion about another card to try, PCI or PCIe? (I really only need one primary channel.)
