    Blue screen bugcode_NDIS when windows tries to install 9260 adapter on win 10 x64 x299 core i9 7960x


      New build, fresh win 10 x64 install on core i9 7960x system, with motherboard that supports m.2 key e wifi. installed intel 9260 m.2, wasn't recognized at first, but after windows update (which crashed with BUGCODE_NDIS_DRIVER after installing intel proset wireless drivers) bluetooth from the adapter was recognized, but wifi was not. in device manager, there is a "!" in the icon to the left of the device name "intel wireless-ac 9260" and the device status (in properties) says "windows is still setting up the class configuration for this device (code 56). there is no wireless adapter in my network adapters, but there is one for bluetooth. uninstalling the intel wireless-ac 9260 network adapter, deleting the currently installed drivers, and reinstalling the latest intel proset wireless drivers for the 9260 (20.50.0) gives the same blue screen crash with the same BUGCODE_NDIS_DRIVER. I've tried drivers 20.4.0, 20.30.1, 20.10.2, and 20.0.2. All drivers intel provides for the intel wireless-ac 9260 cause a blue screen after installation with BUGCODE_NDIS_DRIVER, and upon restart the wifi adapter does not work. Really disappointed i have all this new hardware but can't get the intel wireless-ac 9260 to work.
