Hey guys,

I've recently built a machine which I hoped would act as a fileserver/Plex server but have run into some issues. Firstly, the motherboard isn't compatible with Server 16 and I can't seem to get internet running. The driver is I219V using an Asrock B360M Pro4 motherboard, and I was wondering if there was something I could do to get ethernet running without buying a new nic.

Secondly, does Windows Server 16 support gigabit Nics, or will I need to get a 10gigabit nic. Will I need a 10gigabit switch to connect my machines together?

Sorry I am a complete newbie with networking and can't seem to get my head past this

Thank you.

I haven't tested 2016 yet, but I believe it should be backwards compatible...

In Device Management how is the Ethernet device listed ?

Basically runs the install then say's that the driver is incompatible and kills the installer.

I've found this below and will see if it fixes things.

Could be an old driver, you might want to disable driver sig verification to see if that helps...
