    This is actually a dirty trick by Intel; someone has decided they don't want us installing server operating systems on desktop motherboards.

     

    There is however a very easy fix for this; all Intel have done is add a few comments to the driver .inf to stop server operating systems picking up desktop motherboard ethernet controllers.

     

    First thing to do is download http://downloadmirror.intel.com/20074/eng/V16_3_CD.zip which is the full driver set for all Intel ethernet controllers; extract this to a handy location.

    Once done navigate to the PRO1000 folder; depending on whether you have a 32bit or 64bit OS you will then want either Win32 or Winx64(not Win64 which is for Itanium).

    The choice for the next folder will depend on your OS; NDIS5x is Server2003 or XP, NDIS61 is Server2008 or Vista, NDIS62 is Server2008R2 or 7

    In either case once you have chosen the correct folder you need to find the .inf starting e1c ; so for Server2008 64bit it will be called e1c60x64.inf

     

    The part we need to change is below:

     

    ; e1c51x64.INF (Intel 64 bit extension Platform Only,
    ; Windows XP 64 bit extension and Windows Server 2003 64 bit extension)

     

    ;
    ; Intel(R) Gigabit Network connections
    ;******************************************************************************

    ClassGUID   = {4d36e972-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}
    Provider    = %Intel%
    CatalogFile = e1c51x64.cat
    DriverVer   = 05/04/2011,11.12.36.0

        PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1502,\
        PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1503

     

    [Intel]

     

    [Intel.NTamd64.5.2]
    ; DisplayName                   Section        DeviceID
    ; -----------                   -------        --------
    %E1502NC.DeviceDesc%            = E1502,       PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1502
    %E1502NC.DeviceDesc%            = E1502,       PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1502&SUBSYS_00011179

     

    [Intel.NTamd64.5.2.1]
    ; DisplayName                   Section        DeviceID
    ; -----------                   -------        --------
    %E1502NC.DeviceDesc%            = E1502,       PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1502
    %E1502NC.DeviceDesc%            = E1502,       PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1502&SUBSYS_00011179
    %E1503NC.DeviceDesc%            = E1503,       PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1503
    %E1503NC.DeviceDesc%            = E1503,       PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1503&SUBSYS_00011179

     

     

    What needs changing first is the [ControlFlags] section, I remove all 3 lines but leave the section header so all it should say is [ControlFlags] and then go on to the [Intel] section.

    Next look at the [Intel] section, the [Intel.NTamd64.5.2] relates to Server 2008 and the [Intel.NTamd64.5.2.1] section to Vista; you can see that the E1503 lines are missing from the server section, simply copy/paste those two lines, you should end up with and [Intel] section looking like:

     

    [Intel]

     

    [Intel.NTamd64.5.2]
    ; DisplayName                   Section        DeviceID

    %E1502NC.DeviceDesc%            = E1502,       PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1502&SUBSYS_00011179

    %E1503NC.DeviceDesc%            = E1503,       PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1503
    %E1503NC.DeviceDesc%            = E1503,       PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1503&SUBSYS_00011179

     

    [Intel.NTamd64.5.2.1]
    ; DisplayName                   Section        DeviceID
    ; -----------                   -------        --------
    %E1502NC.DeviceDesc%            = E1502,       PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1502
    %E1502NC.DeviceDesc%            = E1502,       PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1502&SUBSYS_00011179
    %E1503NC.DeviceDesc%            = E1503,       PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1503
    %E1503NC.DeviceDesc%            = E1503,       PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1503&SUBSYS_00011179

     

    Save the inf file and you should then find the driver will install perfectly.

     

    Hope this helps

    You sir... are a good man. Works like a charm, I needed this to setup a Hyper-V lab at home. The computer was fairly cheap and supported 32GB RAM making this ideal. When the drivers did not install, I had just hoped maybe someone had a fix and you found it.

    Please!
    Send the driver to Adam.Vincent0@gmail.com fast!

    I recently installed a computer with Asus Sabertooth P67 and Windows 64 Ultimate for a customer.. And the Network device wont work (error code 10)
    I've tried everything the past 2 hours, Reinstall/delete driver 20times, 5 kind of Driver programs, new install of Windows 7 and still no clue..
    I am starting to rip my hair off my head....

     

     

    Edit: I don't want drivers from the driver center.. I need old ones that work or just a working INF file.

    The problem you are having is nothing to do with the issue in this topic; this was to do with Intel modifying their .inf files so that you could not install their drivers if you tried to put a Server OS on a desktop motherboard.

     

    That said having looked at your motherboard the unmodifed drivers from my post should install; those are the ones I use on all my Win 7 x64 images, the latest ones just for x64 can be downloaded here http://downloadmirror.intel.com/18718/eng/PROWinx64.exe , you should be able to double click the .exe .

     

    If running the setup fails to find the driver then extract the .exe and find the ethernet controller in device manager and install that way.

     

    Just another minor thought, you don't have a wireless card in the machine that you could be confusing with the ethernet?

     

    Hope this helps

    Thank you for the answer but i'm still having issues..
    As I said, i have tried everything.

     

    No im not using any wireless card.
    This is a fresh computer that came in today and i installed it.

     

    Asus Sabertooth B3 P67
    i7 2600K
    8GB DDR3 1600
    Corsair HX750
    Geforce GTX 570

     


    It does not fail to find the driver, it fails to "use" the device properly.

     

    As seen in this image:
    http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/694/devicem.png/

     

     

     

    Edit:
    I am using my iPhone as internet right now, it doesn't matter if it is connected or not.

     

    Edit nr2:
    I just talked to the support from where i ordered the motherboard, they are going to take it back for RMA (what they are going to look for i have no idea becous i've tried everything that has to do with software)
    So either it is hardware-faulty or just incompitable with the rig.

    It looks like the driver is installed ok so that may not be the issue.

     

    Have you got the latest BIOS ; 1801 is the latest stable , have you tried a bios reset/remove battery.

     

    Are there any other cards in the system that could be interfering with the ethernet, could be worth trying a basic video card.

     

    Try less/different RAM

     

    Given that the driver is install ok then this is most likely a hardware issue; we don't sell ASUS motherboards but I've used Intel moterboards with the same chipset and ethernet controller without issue.

     

    Sorry if you have tried all this; I've no idea how experienced you are with this kind of problem , nor do I know exactly what you have tried to be able to think of something you may not have tried.

    Thanks again for the tip.

     

    But i have tried everything that is possible... Without any solution.
    I went to the store i bought a new Motherboard - Asus P8 P67 B3 and now it works.
    I am using a Realtek Lan device now.

     

    I have no idea what the problem was on my sabertooth board but as soon as I get a answer from the RMA, ill let you know.

    Thanks very much simon,

     

    it was very helpful for me.

    I have been trying to solve this problem for 6 months. but now it's solved.

     

    I downloaded from gateway the driver for LAN card for windows 7 professional and I have

    done the steps you've mentioned and it finally worked.

     

    there is a little difference, instead of file e1c60x64.inf we find a file e1c62x64.inf

    and instead of adding 2 lines we will add just one line because in this version there is just

    one line missing

     

    Thanks for your help

    on w2008r2 use drivers LM and working but now

     

    but I found that some services cause problems with certain conditions. LM card because the parameters are not perfectly equal to those of V. and for this reason, some services stop ras. inf should have corrected all of the parameters V

    Hi Simon

     

    The suggested link, http://downloadmirror.intel.com/20074/eng/V16_3_CD.zip,  does not exist anymore. Can you please specify another link for the download?

     


    The problem that I am having with my network adapter, is that when I turn on my pc my network does not work. When troubleshooting, the following result is obtained.

    Network error.PNG

    When I restart my pc (through windows), everything works fine. However, I experience a lot of crashes when working on a network. I have updated my network driver but does not help.

     

    Can you assist please

     

    Thanks

    Hi Jacques

     

    Unless you are running a Server operating system on a desktop motherboard your issue is unrelated to the problem in this post.

     

    The latest Intel driver CD can be downloaded here http://downloadmirror.intel.com/20621/eng/V16_7_CD.zip

     

    assuming your network adapter is integrated into the motherboard then I would look at any BIOS upgrades for the motherboard; you don't give any details of the system, if the motherboard is 4-5 years old then have a look at the capacitors and check that none are bulging/leaking as that can cause random problem like yours and is a precursor to the motherboard failing.

     

    Regards

     

    Simon
