Mac Pro & Multibridge Configuration Question

Hi all I think this is the correct forum for my question.

I have cut and pasted a quote from the Blackmagic web site.

"If you place the Multibridge PCIe adapter card in to a x1 lane slot, the Expansion Slot Utility might not appear and the adapter card might not be recognized by the Mac Pro. For this reason, we recommend the Multibridge PCIe adapter card be placed in slot 4 which is the top slot of the Mac Pro. The top slot has at least x4 lanes allocated to it in all PCI Express Profiles and therefore is always suitable for use with Multibridge."

Ok I have the card in slot 4 and for the life of me cannot find the Expansion Slot Utility. The card is working but I would like to configure the PCI Express Profile as explained the instructions above.

So I have installed in the correct slot and it is working why can't I see the utility, please let me know if I have done something incorrect.

Many thanks, Heather
