While installing Windows Server 2019 on an ASRock B360M Pro4 mainboard with integrated Intel® Ethernet Connection I219-V, execution of the "Intel® Network Adapter Driver for Windows Server 2019*" v23.5 of 2018-12-06 terminates with an error indicating that no Intel hardware was found on the system. Using the "Intel® Ethernet Adapter Complete Driver Pack" v23.5 results in the same error.
The unidentified device in Windows device manager is labeled as "PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_15BC&SUBSYS_15BC1849&REV_10".
A similar installation of Windows 10 1809 on the same hardware using "Intel® Network Adapter Driver for Windows 10" v23.5 succeeds and displays an Ethernet Connection device in Windows device manager.
Now my question should be obvious: How do I get my I219-V Ethernet Connection working under Windows Server 2019?
that's disappointing to hear, but at least I know where I'm at.
Thanks for taking the time to respond in such great detail.
P.S.: You wouldn't possibly know it the situation is different for the Intel Wireless-AC 9560 as per my question in https://forums.intel.com/s/question/0D50P00004ANx03SAD/intel-wirelessac-9560-not-detected-on-windows... ?
I'm having the same problem with a Dell OptiPlex 5050 Micro and it's integrated I219-V.
I understand that the I219-V hardware isn't designed for production workloads, but it would be nice to be able to load the driver in WS19 so I don't have to use a USB3-based NIC to do (non-network) testing on a device that already has a built-in NIC. Maybe throw recurring warning/error in the Event log indicating you shouldn't be running consumer hardware with an enterprise operating system?
ESX 6.7 (also not a consumer OS) identifies and loads a driver for the I219-V, but I need to do some validation with Hyper-V and having some type of workaround to the driver install failing on WS19 would be swell.
Thank for the reply. It looks like the wireless support team provided an answer before our response. Let us know if you have any other questions.
@TonyM VMware provides separate validation for hardware. We recommend checking with VMware for more details. Unfortunately support for server operating systems is not planned for the I219-V.

according to Windows Server Catalog Intel Ethernet Connection I219-V is compatible with Windows Server 2019 x64. Link:
Do I misinterpret that information?
