I bought this board on purpose to install Windows Server 2012 Essentials.
I have upgraded the Bios, installed the OS. Everything is working fine but one thing.
I tried to set up hibernation, but couldn't. Powercfg reports that sleep states S1 and S3 are blocked by 'graphics'.
Other sleep states are blocked because not supported by the mb firmware.
At least, I hoped to find a dedicated driver for the onboard graphics card (embedded in the Emulex BMC chipset I guess).
It is quite annoying if I can't make this server go to sleep. I expect it to be available only from 17:00 to 23:00.
Any idea of what to do about this. Will Intel release other drivers for Windows Server 2012 ?
Thanks for any information,
