    The Win 10 drivers should work. Server 2016 is based on Win 10 1607. Maybe your not getting a good connection.
    Take it out & try some contact cleaner & try again. Qualcomm/Atheros/Killer, the inf should work.
    I've had 1 that had a bang and listed as unknown device but worked fine after a clean. Another (Intel) had a bang for Bluetooth but worked after a clean.

    Sorry im trying to install on the srv 17763 2019 version but the win10 driver should work and yes the card is properly inserted in PCI slot u can see in my pic is detected by the mobo and i see light activity blinkning in the card so i know is working.. is just INF file will not work maybe win10 drivers dont work on srv 2019? i even try to edit the INF file with the latest win10 drivers from their unofficial site and still got the same error invalid INF cant be found.:mad::mad:

    Then contact Manufacturer by mail, hotline or websupport. Must be a mistake from their side when developping the driver and M$ did not test it in their lab. I've seen that long time ago with printer driver. I'm not surprised.

    i told my friend to just return the card for a refund and will order one from newegg im helping him setup the server...he purchase that card from ebay i think is not a authentic Qualcomm must likely a Chinese copy thats why the drivers dont work.
