Driver for Virtual Functions for Intel 82599 (part number E10G42BTDA)

I have recently installed XenServer on a SuperMicro board (X8DTH-iF). The server also has a 10G Intel Network Card. I have enabled SR-IOV in the BIOS, and after assigning a Virtual Function (VF) to a Windows 7 virtual machine, I see that the Virtual Adapter is detected by Windows as an Ethernet Controller. The problem is that i'm trying to install the drivers for this virutal card on the Windows virtual machine, but I can't seem to find any Intel drivers that work. Every dirver that I have downloaded says that no Intel Network cards have been detected. So, what question is, which driver should I use for this Virutal Network Card? The hardware id for this card shows up as PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_10ED&SUBSYS_00038086&REV_01

Any help would be appreciated

Thank you

SR-IOV is designed for Server OS's. Windows 7 is a client OS :-(

The only Windows VF Guest OS for which we currently have drivers for is Windows Server 2008, in both 32 and 64 bit. We are working on Virtual Function drivers for Windows Server 2008 R2, which should be available early 2011.

Any news on the release of a VF driver for 2008 R2 for this NIC?

The driver you need is included in the version 16.2 software release. I just got the web pack posted this morning.
