    Installed Windows 10 NIC drivers but MS says still not compatible?


      My motherboard has a "Intel Ethernet Connection (2) I218-V" NIC built into it. 


      I have installed the latest Win10 compatible drivers (ver 20.2) from https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/71305/Intel-Ethernet-Connection...


      However, Microsoft's "Get Windows 10" compatibility checker still says "Unfortunately, this PC is unable to run Windows 10" reason "There are no supported networking devices".


      How do I resolve this?  Looks like there is a communications gap between Intel (who claims ver 20.2 drivers are compatible) and Microsoft (who thinks that they are not).


      BTW, my motherboard is http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z97%20Anniversary/index.us.asp?cat=Downlo...

      They have ver 20.2 listed there as well.



      Caught between two behemoths (Intel, MS) who cannot communicate w each other!!
