Question Gigabyte X470 Aorus Ultra Gaming AM4 and Windows Server 2019

I'm new to the board and hopefully, this is in the correct forum:
Gigabyte X470 Aorus Ultra Gaming AM4 with AMD Ryzen 5 1600
G. Skill Ripjaws 32Gb (2 x 16Gb) RAM
Asus G-C100C 10G Network Adapter PCI-E
EVGA GeForce GT 1030 Video Card
Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
Windows Server 2019 Trial

All drivers loaded successfully in Windows 10, however, Windows Server 2019 fails to load drivers for the onboard NIC which is an Intel I211 NIC.

I manually updated other drivers from the Gigabyte CD, but it can't see the LAN. The device shows in Device Manager. I downloaded PROWinx64 from Intel and it can't find the LAN.

The ASUS NIC is working. Gigabyte says the board doesn't support Windows Server, but I have drivers for everything but the LAN working.
I'm just researching this from a determination to get the onboard LAN to work.

Any helpful thoughts or suggestions are appreciated.

I had the same problem with Gigabyte GA-Z270XP-SLI and Windows Server 2016. No NIC drivers.

On the other hand, Asus H170 Pro Gaming worked no problem. You can use a PCIe NIC for a work-a-round.
Thanks for the information ... I immediately bought the additional NIC as you suggested.

Hi! How did you get around the chipset install. Or the video driver install. I don't mind buying a gig nic, but not if i can't get the other drivers installed. thanks
