Today I thought I'd perform a test to prepare for my new year's day complete reinstall of W10. So I hooked up my build to ethernet, turned off wifi, verified ethernet operation, downloaded fresh W10 iso, prepared my usb, and cleared my ssds into Acronis images. Test install went fine until I got to the part where it wants to connect to internet and the install refused to recognize my connection. Does this mean the current W10 will not recognize an Intel I225-V controller, or is it just me? Should I have removed my TP-Link 9e pcie wifi card so that the install program didn't get confused about the connection?

It was somewhat tedious having to complete the install using the offline options, manually install the I225-V driver and then resume installation updating with ethernet working. I could have done the same thing using the wifi adapter so being connected to ethernet did me no good.

I googled and looked for a list of devices supported by the W10 install program and couldn't find anything. Does such a list exist? I have an old TP-Link TL-WN822N sitting around that works great with Linux live images, so maybe that would be more compatible and I should try that.

THANKS! for any and all help!
