    Hi Experts



    I have got brand new ASUS mother board P9 X79 Pro that has a built-in LAN Intel 82579V


    I installed windows 2008 R Enterprise Edition , then I tried to use the driver for the LAN from the motherboard CD but it didn't get installed.


    Then I downloaded the driver for the built-in LAN Intel 82579V from Intel website


    I tried to follow the follow step 4 to 15 in the link below, but no joy, I couldn't extract (only I can run ) the driver that

    hxxp should be http

    xxblogs should be //blogs

    Right now in the device manager I have got two devices that have two yellow exclamation marks :


    Ethernet Controller
    Unknown devices


    Any advice how to come over this issue ?


    Thanks

    This is what I tried as well from the CD and it didn't work then I thought that CD only supports windows Visat and Windows 7 then I tried below :

    But issue I was not able to extract .exe intel LAN driver to a folder to reapply the same procedure in the quote above

    This is one didn't help to install the driver , although I tried that couple of times.

    I am going to try that , but if it is .exe can you extract it ?

    Yes you are right, because it is a fresh installation and I I fogot to install a zip program, once I installed one of them I was able to extract .exe file.

    Now still facing same issue can't get the proper driver to be installed.

    While If I try from the CD that came with motherboard to install the driver the below message pops uo

    Code:
    Cannot install drivers. No Intel(R) Adapters are presented in this computer

    Before I installed windows 2008 , there was windows 7 installed and the LAN connection was working fine, means it was already enabled in the BIOS, although I had checked that after installing windows 2008.

    Yes there is.

    I will try again and update you now

    If you can not extract driver, then it is definitely time to give up on Windows server.
