    See Remove a PCIe Riser From PCIe Slot 1 or 2.

  2. Remove the PCIe card from the PCIe riser.

  3. Place the PCIe card on an antistatic mat.


    Caution  -  Whenever you remove a PCIe card, you should replace it with another PCIe card or a PCIe filler panel. Installing PCIe filler panels in vacant PCIe slots helps reduce the level of electromagnetic interference (EMI) emitted by the server. See Remove and Install Filler Panels.
