Hello I am setting up a Windows Server 2016 to test a fax application. Upon a fresh install it is not detecting the Ethernet Driver. I tried getting the latest Win 10, Win 8.1, Win 7 drivers off Lenovo for my specific model M720q. I did not find any specific drivers for Windows Server 2016 from Lenovo. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Also I did get a connection using a USB -Ethernet adapter and I tried downloading drivers through Windows updates and said no updates found in device manager. Also tried Lenovo system update tool and it downloaded the LAN driver, and said it installed but did not reflect the install in the results or in device manager.

Did you look for the driver on the Intel download site for the specific Ethernet adapter installed?

I meant manually look for the correct driver on the Intel download site, since according to the specs, your system has an Intel adapter:

I contacted Lenovo support and gave them the serial number and they told me it is only compatible with Windows 10, they recommended to spec something out for what I intend to do.
I can get network connectivity with a USB--Ethernet adapter, but I really don't want to use that on a server.
