Either this page is completly wrong or something else is not right:
http://www.intel.com/support/network/sb/CS-033746.htm Network Connectivity — Is my Intel� Ethernet Adapter supported in Microsoft Windows Server 2012*?
I have few of these brand new adapters
With clean install of 2012 R2 only default Microsoft driver gets picked up & there is no way to upgrade it to anything else.
Which means I can not get ANS installed.
PROSet 18.7 simply does NOT have drivers for this adapter for 2012 R2 (it does for Windows 8 only)
