Hey people,

I just purchased a brand new PCI-E Gigabit adapter from Intel https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/network-io/ethernet/gigabit-adapters/ct-desktop.html
But Im having a hard time to get it functioning, will I get it? The card is installed to mobo and if I connect ethernet cable to it, it flashes green/orange light which means it's alive, but it won't show up in device manager. I tried to download adapter driver from link I posted but installation keeps saying "the operating system is not supported".
The motherboard model is: MSI X58 Pro-E.

What should I do? Shouldn't this work with this mobo/Win10?
Thank you in advance.

EDIT: Tried to download driver from this link, got this picture during installation.
OS is Win10 Pro.

After I moved the network adapter into PCIe x16 slot BOOM!, everything started to work automatically.

That's very weird since in the manual it points to install it into x1, well whatever now it works.
