    Yeah the driver should work without disabling driver signature enforcement. Anyways glad you got it working! I think i should edit OP for instructions as I see there are a lot of people with this problem..

    In case anyone needs to do this on the newest server 2022.
    The stock hidi2c.inf does not work (appears as if it doesn't have any driver in inf) unless with the following modification:
    Change all "NTamd64...1" to "NTamd64"
    After that just install the driver with signing turned off. Then it would work even when the signing is turned on again.

    The REG trick is not a good idea unless it's for the exactly same machine. Because different machines will have the dev id slightly different. Your REG does not work for another machine.
    Installing driver with signing turned off is much cleaner and better way.

    You can get your own reg keys from registry editor. Better than using unsigned drivers.

    So you have to install a windows 10, export the REG, then install windows server? Why is that better?
    What's wrong with a genuine stock version INF file plus a trivial no-op modification, then press "F8"? Just because microsoft says "Oh no that's dangerous"?

    It's not. It's the same driver as the stock one, except for a little bug fix to make it install-able.

    While the regedit import from another OS version is quite dangerous.

    Starting from 16299 or so some unsigned drivers aren't accepted even with testmode enabled.

    Just sign them (the xxxx.sys I mean) using dseo13b.exe

    Thanks a lot. Looking forward for your guide. I have installed the server 2022 and installed the normal software. Everything is working except the touchpad.

    I will try to get the modified driver signed, so it's easier to install.

    Okay, you need to get the driver from boot.wim, unpack the windows server boot.wim with 7zip and find the files: hidi2c.inf and hidi2c.sys
