[Req.] latest Driver Intel Ethernet Controller (3) i225-V for Server 2022

Hello folks,
first of all thanks in advance if anyone can help me. I’ve tried everything to get the Win 10 driver under Server 2022 but no success. A modded old driver ( is circulating on the internet. But that leads to BSODs. Maybe there is someone out there who has “tuned” a more recent driver.
Best regards

did you look here : Intel® Network Adapter Driver for Microsoft* Windows* 11 ?

has version for i225-V for windows server 2022. windows 10 driver is 1.1.3.x.
have you tried a manual selection of the driver in device manager ?

Today I tried to install the recommend drivers, but no success, because there are only the subtypes (-IT, -LM, -LMvP) of the i225 (3) controller will be supported and not the V.
Yesterday I modded the NDIS68 e2f.inf and disabled the driver check and had sucess. Now I’am testing with the non signated driver.

Please try the attached WHQL certified Intel Ethernet driver v1.1.3.28 dated 03/05/2022, which is part of Intel’s officially released Ethernet Driverpack “Release_28.0”.
According to the INF file it definitively supports the i255-V Ethernet Controller while running Windows Server 2022 x64:

Good luck!

Thank for your help but unfortunately it doesnt work. i did some screenshots. mayby that helps to find the reason.


This was the try with the files you have sended.

There is no model (3) I225-V listed.

This is not true. As you can see here, it is listed within the INF file:

Maybe he/she should scroll down that list after directing it to the correct directory containing the driver.

This is just too far beyond normal. Fixing it by editing inf files, god knows what else this person has “fixed” on their pc that it now can’t even install a correct driver anymore.

Hello folks out there, perhaps I didn’t expressly say so in my first post, the i225-V is a chip that is installed on a mainboard (Gigabyte Z590 Waterforce).
According to this link: Unterstützte Betriebssysteme für Intel® Ethernet... the LOM - Variant not supported with Server 2022. Does somebody has any idea?

just go the the intel link i posted, download that pack (version 28) and read the release notes while you’re there.

it is all you need. Release notes also clearly states what i mentioned in my first reply concerning version numbers. When you say it doesn’t work then you are doing something wrong. Maybe reinstall your windows to be sure you didn’t “customize” it to a rekt condition.

INF string list is not the supported devices list

E15F3_3NC.DeviceDesc = “Intel(R) Ethernet Controller (3) I225-V”
is only supported by the Client/Workstation models section

Also note the highlighted devices that are exclusive to each section.

Intel being Intel.
It’s just another tactic to force users to use Server certified boards.

Just mod the inf and temporary disable Disable driver signature enforcement to install the driver.

You can use the following sections from my modded driver that supports all 2.5Gb controllers:

look what’s in the release notes.

and in the .inf file

Thanks, has helped me.
Btw. Server with a clean Microsoft ISO, no changes on that system and official Intel drivers.
