Need an Intel 82566MM NIC driver for W10x64

Hi All,

 

Could anyone please advise an optimal Intel 82566MM NIC driver for Lenovo ThinkPad X61s running W10x64? This is a fresh W10x64 install and I'm getting "Device cannot start" with the inbox W10 driver. A couple of drivers that I found on the Internet won't even install: each returns something like "no Intel NICs found, or check the driver is compatible with W10" after I point at the inf file. Here are the HW IDs:

 

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1049&SUBSYS_20DE17AA&REV_03

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1049&SUBSYS_20DE17AA

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1049&CC_020000

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1049&CC_0200

 

Many thanks in anticipation.

Sorry, but that NIC is long since discontinued and not supported on Windows 10:

For assistance with your laptop, contact Lenovo. They are solely responsible for your support. And, use the drivers they provide.

Al.Hill: Thanks for your reply. In fact I fortunately got it working somehow: MS driver version 9.13.41.3 dated 29.09.2011, driver file e1e6032e.sys. Was just installing various Windows updates and rebooting the laptop and have just noticed it up and running.

Ok, but you are unsupported.
