Intel® NUC 9 Pro Compute Element - NUC9V7QNB - NIC Support for Windows Server 2019

The specs on the Intel® NUC 9 Pro Compute Element - NUC9V7QNB show that it supports Windows Server 2019 (with an asterisk), however . . . 

I don't see a Network driver listed in the available drivers for for this device with Server 2019.

Is there a NIC driver available?

Hello SLAdmin, 

 

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.   

 

You can find the latest drivers for the ethernet adapter this NUC here: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/28396/Intel-Network-Adapter-Driver-for-Windows-Server-2019...  

 

Please keep in mind that Windows server is compatible with this NUC; however, support for Server OS is limited: Bluetooth, Wireless, RAID, and Thunderbolt aren't supported in the Server OS. https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005628/intel-nuc.html 

 

Here is how to activate the Wireless service in Windows server 2019: 

  

1. Go to Start, type Server Manager and Click on Server Manager 

2. Select "Add roles and features" 

3. Click Next 

4. Select Role-based or feature-based installation and click next 

5. Select a Server from the Server Pool and Click Next 

6. Click Next 

7. Select Wireless Lan Service and Click Next 

8. Select restart if required and Click Yes and Click Install then 

9. Complete the installation 

10. Wireless Lan Service is installed. 

11. If needed, go to Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network Connections > Change Adapter Settings. 

Wireless is ready to load drivers (Use Windows10 drivers)

Yes, thank you for that link.

I'm just a bit confused why the driver is not listed in the available drivers when looking at the NUC9V7QNB download page (and selecting Windows Server 2019).

It makes me wonder if it is 100% compatible.

Hello SLAdmin,   

 

Thanks for the response. 

 

That driver is the correct one for the ethernet adapter included in your NUC (Intel® Ethernet Connection I219-LM); so it is compatible with the platform. 

 

We will do an internal request for it to be added to the NUC's download list. 

 

Any questions, please let me know.
