    Works fine on Mac, not on PC

    I purchased this, from an Apple reseller to use with my PC (MacBook Pro already has firewire 800 port) it works well, however, if I restart my Dell T1700 with the adapter plugged in the PC will POST but fails to BOOT. Thus freezing on the boot screen indefinitely.
    The adapter and PC are both fine and have no hardware issues (Dell engineer replaced thunderbolt card and same issue), this is purely a compatibility issue.

    This adapter is not fully Windows compatible.

    However, it works well on other Macs (I have access to 2014 iMacs)
