wrote a guide to get this working here: https://forums.servethehome.com/ind...ported-adapters-on-windows-server-core.40128/Has anyone gotten Server Core 2022 installed on the Topton?
Also - one can use this method to install all the OTHER device drivers that Server Core won't install. You will NOT be able to update these drivers via the Windows Admin Center Device Manager
- For Intel INF drivers, download the SetupChipset utility from here: Chipset INF Utility and run SetupChipset.exe /s for silent install - this should cover most of the system chipset devices.
- But if you're still seeing devices that don't have drivers - like PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_4DE0 - either load the Intel ME driver (Intel® Management Engine Drivers for Windows® 10 and Windows® 11) or then use devcon to update the drivers one by one. For example in the ME engine setup zip, there's the drivers\MEI\win10 directory which contains heci.inf which contains an entry for "PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_4DE0". Therefore you can use devcon
devcon update heci.inf "PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_4DE0"
This should install the driver successfully
- Still other drivers such as ACPI\INT34C8 - these are available via Microsoft's catalog Microsoft Update Catalog - download and use the same devcon trick to update drivers.
So far the only drivers I see not working or installed are for the sound system and for the GNA accelerator. I have no need to install these. However, with the INF & Chipset drivers installed, I get working Speedshift and DPTF - so the platform runs nice and cool and uses minimal energy
