I am not surprised; the download does say that it is only for 64-Bit Windows 10. I am sure they haven't tested it on Windows Server 2019. I will pass this report along; we'll see if they can come up with a fix...

  1. Only Windows10, 64-bit and Windows Server 2016 are supported on NUC8i7HVK. As far I understand, Thunderbolt is not supported in Server O.S. https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005628/mini-pcs.html
  2. Any way, the Thunderbolt Driver should be installed before updating the Thunderbolt firmware.
  3. For your information, this is Guide how to update Thunderbolt firmware https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/mini-pcs/Thunderbolt-FW-Update-Guide.pdf

Until Intel announces support for Windows Server 2019 on these NUCs, I rather doubt that this will get fixed.

Knowing it was not supported, I tried anyway.

Got it working with the latest drivers, but it would drop out after roughly 5 minutes.

Tried the firmware update, hoping for an improvement, but not successful.

Thinking of trying to boot Win10, perform the update, then return to server 2019. Since it's firmware, may work?
