Thank you for contacting Intel.
The Intel® Gigabit ET Dual Port Server Adapter (E1G42ET) has In-box support only, no full support. In box driver means the driver and software are not planned for this adapter model. Please refer to our website for Intel® Ethernet Adapters with driver support for Windows Server 2012 R2*:
Hope this is helpful.
