3Driver not certified

  • Intel has provided these drivers as a convenience if you want to use these older devices with Windows 8* or Windows Server 2012*. Although the drivers are certified for Windows 7* and Windows Server 2008 R2*, they are not certified for use in Windows 8 and or Windows Server 2012. They have not received the normal, exhaustive level of testing usually performed by Intel.
  • Intel has tested basic installation and functionality in Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, including advanced features such as teaming and configuring VLANs. Intel does not plan to certify drivers for these devices for Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012.
  • If you plan to use Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012, Intel recommends you use newer devices with certified drivers.
