IPC2 Windows Server 2012 drivers

Post by Rjay »

I have Windows 2012 Server install on my IPC2 but have some drivers missing. When looking at the back of the IPC2 the left Ethernet is working but the right not. Wifi works also. The items listed in Device Manager that are requiring drivers are Ethernet Controller, SM Bus Controller and two Unknown Devices. :|

Tried some of the Win7 drivers, and Windows Update has cleared some up but the ones listed above are still missing! Screenshot of Device Manager attached

thanks

Please try Windows 8 drivers - it should be similar to Windows Server

hey thanks mate! yeh the Win8 drivers weren't up when i first posted this.... the Win8 drivers didn't help much as the main ones that were missing I think are related to bluetooth and the bluetooth drivers for Win7 or Win8 wont run the installer on Win2012Svr.

In talks with crew at the moment to see what we can do as even the Win8 drivers leave one unknown device even on Win8!

Correct, I ended up running Windows 8.1, mainly because it was easier and all the Wifi etc works (some of the elements isn't just drivers but that fact they are not supported under the Windows 2012).

Also with 8.1 you could still run Hyper-V to run multiple VM's so I figured it made sense to do it that way.

Hope this helps :)

If you're having problems getting the Intel I211 network driver to install on Server 2012 R2, it's not officially supported by Intel but there is a workaround. I followed the instructions on this page and got it to work under Server 2012 R2.

I hope it helps someone.
