if I had to hazard a guess its to do with DMA? Im no expert but some cards that need DMA wont work along side a V500 in an Amiga 2000 - probably the same thing going on here?

I m guessing that same problem we have with mediator. When we fix mediator problem Micronik should work too. This should be relatively easy fix. In some topic I have explained what is the problem. But, with next sentence I will write I m hoping that I won't start another discussion. With Vampire 1200 I hardly need something else to plugin beside card itself. However, system with mediator starts but PCI cards refuse to work. I m not familiar with how Micronik Z2 work regarding internal logic. Maybe someone can provide more info to me?

If you wish, I can send you the Micronik, if it helps,
I will take care of shipping costs for there and back.
