    Hi,
    I'm looking for driver for this ethernet card.
    I can't find anymore but someone post the official driver for server 2012 that supported i225v without any modification on other site. they were pure without modification
    I can't find it anymore
    i remember that years ago i used them but now i can't find the page anymore
    they didnt recquire signing or other things, they were pure intel driver.
    they were from win-raid i think before the renaming
    thank you in advance!

    i tryed the driver above but they are the ndsi 68 which they don't work on server 2012
    i can't remember where
    but i downloaded the drivers without adding any modifications.
    it was maybe win raid or msfn

    they were pure server 2012 drivers

    In device manager just do a right click on the lan, select update driver, browse and then let me pick from a list. Select the closest matching intel driver listed.
    Test & relax because it's a workin! You can do the same for svr 2022...

    Have you bothered even trying what I suggested? Even for the the i219-v range it works.
    Again, from device manager, just manually select from drivers lists by manufacture - "Intel", then from drivers list - some like "I225" – it should work fine!
    You may need to untick “display compatible drivers” or confirm any incompatible warnings.
    But it will work...

    the inf file has nt.10.0 inserted, so nt 6.3 won't show any devices compatibles. since nt 6.3 it's excluded, i need to manually modify the inf file and if i modify the inf file i lose driver signing.
    i try everything
    i'm sorry if i didnt said it before.

    Try using the i225-lm driver rather than i225-v which doesn't work for server OS, I'm using the -LM driver quite happily on Server 2022 with an i225-v network card.
    You'll have to search for it through device manager, and pick it from the list of installed drivers though upload_2024-3-29_14-3-11.png

    I’m using Windows Server 2012 not 2022, that’s the problem. When using 2022 I use normal driver and that’s okay. But in server 2012 r2 I have to make modifications and that ruin the driver signing
