Can a PCI-e 1x card work in a PCI-e 8x slot?
 
My server has 1 - PCI-e 1x slot and 2 - PCI-e 8x slot. Can I plug a 1x sata card into the 8x slot? Will it work? or do you have to have a 8x card?

According to this PCI document (look for "Table 3. PCI Express Card Interoperability", a x1 card is required to work in all four slot types.
