DS1817+ (16GB) won't boot with X540 T2 card

Its listed on the compatibility list, and it works fine in a PC, but when I install it in my DS1817+ (which was upgraded to 16GB RAM) I just get the blinking blue light and it does not boot up. I power down, remove the card, and it boots right up.

Has anyone else run in to this? Any recommendations on fixing?

Does it run with 8GB RAM? X540 is new, or used? Where did you get it from?
