NUC7I7BNB error when trying to install LAN driver

Jump to solution

Hello and thanks for reading,

 

I have a NUC7i7BNB and had to change the OS, I moved from Windows 10 Pro to Windows Server Essential 2019, now I can't make the LAN adapter work.

 

I tried to Install the Intel Driver Assistant, but it fails scanning both on Internet Explorer and Chrome.

 

So I tried to find the driver myself. Most suitable seems this one, but when trying to install, it fails stating that there is no Intel LAN adapter found. I don't know what else to do now.

 

I attached a BIOS screenshot, stating BIOS is up to date. The OS is "Windows Server Essentials 2019, Version 1809". Hoping to find some help here.

 

Thanks a lot!

Ok, I think I fixed it, in the end. I started to try to install from each of the above INF files, the adapters are then listed. I used the driver package targeting Windows 10 (called LAN_WIN10_64_24.1.exe), not Windows server, but I am quite sure it doesn't matter. I used the newest INF, which was LAN_WIN10_64_24.1\PRO1000\Winx64\NDIS65\e1d65x64.inf.

 

Now the list does not show the I219V, but some I219LM. I tried these and the first one worked right out of the box after skipping a warning that the driver won't be suitable. Adapter I219LM is now listed as "working correctly", ping works to all 24 clients, and so does copying data. So I think I found a workaround. If ever someone needs the onboard Intel LAN ethernet adapter working, this workaround might help.

 

So now I gonna do this for some hardware that`s also listed as "not found":

 

  • PCI-Bus 59, device 0, function 0
  • "Unknown device" on Mobile 7th Generation Intel(R) Processor Family I/O LPC Controller (U with iHDCP2.2 Premium) - 9D4E
  • "Unknown device" Port_#0008.Hub_#0001

Only W10 is supported on your NUC.

Hello! Why is this? And where did you get this information?

 

Almost everything works fine, only the LAN adapter doesn't.

 

Thanks! Martin...

Jesus! I never thought I have an i7 machine with 32GB not able to work as Windows server. However, I have a workaround: I plugged in an USB3 to LAN adapter, it worked out ow the box, so now at least I have ethernet running.

 

Nevertheless I would like to activate the onboard ethernet adapter, as Intel states it should work on Windows Server Essentials 2019. Now I can download the driver package and unzip it, to force the OS to install the driver, but I don't know which to use, there are a lot of drivers in the package. Can anyone tell me which one to use for the I219V LAN adapter?

 

Also, maybe someone here can help me another way (OT): I installed Windows Server Essentials 2019 only because Windows 10 allows only 20 TCP connections to share a folder. When setting up the share, the dialog shows a spin dial, that can't be screwed above 20. On my already running Windows server, I have a limit of 16777216:

That`s the only reason why I moved to Windows Server. Now, does anyone maybe have an idea, if there is a Windows version that allows more than 20 shares AND runs on a NUC?

 

Thanks a lot!

"Now, does anyone maybe have an idea, if there is a Windows version that allows more than 20 shares"? Ask Microsoft.

Hello! Thanks a lot for your hint. Actually I linked exactly your URL in a former mail in this thread, so I already tried it. The setup states that there is no LAN card found.

 

Now since I know there is a I219V LAN card in this NUC (see Intel spec sheet) and since I know it should work on Windows Server Essentials 2019 (see Intel compatibility list here), I wonder if it is just the Setup-program that rejects to install the driver, just because it is a NUC. So I would really like to try to force the OS to install the driver for the I219V. The ProWinx64.exe downloadable from the link you posted is actually an archive. When unzipping it, I get a huge structure of several drivers I could use to force the OS to install. But I don't know which one is the right one for I219V. These INF-Files contains the string "219", does someone know which one to use?

 

PROWinx64\PRO1000\Winx64\NDIS62\e1d62x64.inf

PROWinx64\PRO1000\Winx64\NDIS63\e1d63x64.inf

PROWinx64\PRO1000\Winx64\NDIS64\e1d64x64.inf

PROWinx64\PRO1000\Winx64\NDIS65\e1d65x64.inf

PROWinx64\PRO1000\Winx64\NDIS68\e1d68x64.inf

PROWinx64\PRO40GB\Winx64\NDIS64\i40eb64.inf

PROWinx64\PRO40GB\Winx64\NDIS65\i40eb65.inf

PROWinx64\PRO40GB\Winx64\NDIS68\i40eb68.inf

 

So my question is: Can anyone tell me which driver is the one for the I219V adapter?

 

Thank you very much!
