    Thunderbolt driver not allowed in Windows Server 2012 R2 or 2016


      Why is Intel purposely not allowing Thunderbolt support under Windows Server 2012 R2 or 2016? Why? What is the point in not allowing Intel's best direct connection technology to work where its needed the most? There are a growing number of TB3 DAS devices that are fantastic and would be a great addition to a Windows server, but no Intel won't allow that and not for a technical reason either.


      Intel is shooting itself in the foot with the way it's handling Thunderbolt and it makes no sense what so ever.


      This is NOT an OEM issue. The OEM did not create this driver, INTEL DID. Intel is the one who put in this artificial limitation.
