Intel DC P3700 SSD Windows Server 2003 x64 driver ?

Hello all,

With intel.com drivers i can't make my Intel DC P3700 SSD work in Windows Server 2003 x64.

The drivers want at least Win Server 2008 R2.

Is there any way , or driver for it to run in Windows Server 2003 x64 ?

I know 2003 is outdated but i must run it in some systems for legacy problems.

Hello erhansahin,

The Intel® SSD DC P3700 Series and other Intel® NVMe SSD's are not supported with Microsoft Windows Server 2003*. We recommend you to install and use these drives in systems with one of the supported operating systems, which include Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2*, Windows Server 2012 R2* and Windows Server 2012*. For more details about the System requirements, please check the following document:

Unfortunately, Intel does not provide NVMe SSD drivers for Windows Server 2003*, and since Microsoft already announced http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/server-cloud/products/windows-server-2003/ Windows Server 2003* extended support has ended, we do not expect this to change in the future.

If you need to use Windows Server 2003*, you might consider using http://ark.intel.com/# @SolidStateDrives SATA Intel® Data Center SSD's, or other storage solution compatible with this configuration.
