According to the Intel official website, I download this driver and it cannot install on Windows Server 2016. I saw that there is only NTamd126.96.36.199 in inf file. When I tried to install, it display error code 182. If I change inf file, disable driver sign and manual install it, OpenCL cannot work correctly and some apps crash such as Geekbench. How can I do if I want to install Windows Server 2016 on NUC8i7 series?
I have "clean install" windows server 2016 and install driver. AMD driver cannot install.
Test two image iso files as following:
Duplicate issue step:
By the way, I cannot find my previous post. I can only search in google:
Same error 182 here with Windows Server 2016 and Windows Server 2019 (although 2019 is not in the list of supported OS). Same error 182 when Windows Server 2016 (or 2019) is installed as a VM with GPU passthrough on ESXi 6.5U2 (I know, ESXi is also not on the list of supported OS on this NUC). Tested on NUC8I7HVK.
Any progress yet? Could the error be reproduced? Are you working on it? Anything to let us know that our message was read?
Shouldn't be too hard for you to reproduce with Windows Server 2016 with below steps:
All resulted in a Error 182. So why can't we install the Windows Server 2016 drivers on our NUC? I have investigated compatibility of the NUC with Windows Server 2016 before purchase and through your driver list it should but it isn't.
Hello all: Thank you for posting in the Intel® Communities Support.
We were able to replicate the same issue, even when trying different drivers including the one from AMD*, and we are currently investigating this under your original thread: NUC8i7HVK/NUC8i7HNK cannot install AMD VEGA driver on Windows server 2016:
Please let us know if you both can access the thread provided above, since the updates for this scenario will be shared on that thread.

The second link (https://forums.intel.com/s/question/0D50P000049D056SAC/nuc8i7hvknuc8i7hnk-cannot-install-amd-vega-dr...) is still not working for me. If I understand Alberto R correctly, the answers will be posted in that last thread, which I can't access. I can't even find it on the forum 😢
Here is an update;
Driver version 18.7.1. has been removed from Intel Download Center, a newer version was added 23.20.792.2048. This driver was tested to properly install on Hades Canyon.
Please give it try, here is the direct link:
I test for this driver four times and get three times fail. It's not very stable...
I reply for Ronny as following:
Thanks for your help. But I also get problem. I install four times and three times fail. (fail rate : 75%)
Sometimes will get black screen (I wait 10 mins) but shows mouse. Sometimes will install imcoplete.
If I get black screen and restart by press power button long seconds and boot into OS, it will get wrong as following:
By the way I also see that this is old driver version that 18Q1 for GUI and 17.7.1 for driver inf. Why do not using newer driver?
Seems that driver version is one of the oldest and identical to the one I tested 6 days ago (although it now says WIndows Server 2016 in the link).
I'm not at home at this moment so can't test it right now but with a fail rate of 75% on installation and a black screen after a succesful installation, I'm not really hopeful.
Maybe Intel can provide us the installation procedure how they got the driver to install succesful? Which version of Server 2016? Which drivers are installed before the VEGA driver?
Hi Ronny G,
I always test this with a fresh install of Windows Server 2016. My post from a month ago also described the same installation procedure you did with the same driver version (I still believe the linked driver is the same as I linked a month ago). Anyway, I couldn't get it to install properly on Windows Server 2016 (en_windows_server_2016_x64_dvd_9718492.iso used this time) or Windows Server 2019 (SW_DVD9_Win_Server_STD_CORE_2019_64Bit_English_DC_STD_MLF_X21-96581.iso)
Any update on your side?
Hi Alberto R,
I did a fresh reinstall of Windows Server 2016 (en_windows_server_2016_x64_dvd_9718492.iso) on 2 Samsung 970 PRO 512GB SSDs in RAID 0 configuration. I installed the chipset and iGPU drivers successfully. Installation of the AMD Radeon Vega M driver was successful (yeah!)....
..... until reboot....
Windows Server 2016 hung on the turning wheel screen during boot. Mouse was visible but it didn't finish the boot. Turned of the NUC by unplugging the cord. Second boot was successful but after opening the AMD Radeon Settings, I encountered the same OpenGL error as posted 23 days ago by 晨羅1:
Failed to create OpenGL format by... etc. etc.
So the test was not successful.. unfortunately. I hope investigation is still going on?
Yes, Intel didn't fix this problem. I reinstall over 10 times and sometimes get the same issue as you. If you try to open amd settings it will shows what I post screenshot before 23 days. And others are hang and black screen in installation.
Also this driver cannot output with Thunderbolt 3 which my monitor is PA32UC. I was disappointed with this.
By the way, you can download Win10-64Bit-Radeon-Software-Adrenalin-2019-Edition-18.12.2-Dec12 and tried my steps as following:
I did it slightly different with Win10-64Bit-Radeon-Software-Adrenalin-2019-Edition-18.12.3-Dec19 as I couldn't get it to work your way (manual install still failed with unsupported OS error)
AMD Radeon Settings are working now, so does OpenCL and OpenGL
Going to try it under Windows Server 2019 and then Windows Server 2019 VM on ESXI 6.5
