ThinkCentre M700: Ethernet Network Driver - Server 2012 & 2019 - Intel I219-LM

Hi,

 

We've recently installed Server 2012 on a new Lenovo ThinkCentre M700 and unfortunately it's unable to pick up the network adapter. We tried the Windows 8.1 versions of the network drivers from the Lenovo site (as they share the same kernel) but they didn't work.

 

Have also tried downloading the server 2012 versions of the specific drivers direct from Intel's website.

 

Has anyone had any luck finding a server 2012 network driver for this machine? 

 

Thanks

What is the issue with the drivers downloaded direct from Intel?

Hi BiggAl,

 

I managed to resolve this issue in the end. When I tried to install the drivers direct from the Intel site it failed not recognising the network adapter. However, when I go choose to manually install the driver via device manager (Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer) I found the driver there (intel I219-LM).

You dont need the Driver from the Intel Site. You can just right click on the unknown Device in Device-Manager, then choose Driver from List of Drivers and scroll through the long list of Intel Drivers until you can find l219-LM.

 

It works on my Server 2019 with an M700tiny too. Thanks so much for the tip!
