How to Install an nVidia GRID Card on Dell Servers

So, in the process of doing my job here at Dell as a VDI Support Guy in ProSupport, I periodically come across a customer issue where the GRID cards are not properly installed in the system, either because of a misconfiguration/oversight when ordering the server or just forgetting a step in the installation process.

After searching the Internet for some sort of doc or video that details the process and not finding anything, I stepped into our lab here in ProSupport and did an installation video.

Two key points:

  1. Make sure you ground yourself, protect your equipment from static discharge!!
  2. Don’t forget the power cable for the GRID.


Enjoy, and I hope this helps someone out. ┬áPlease let me know if it does… below… in the comments.
