PS: The notes, comments and contents below may change without notice.

  • (DL001) Aspeed graphics driver supports Windows Server but not for client OS from Windows 11 and onwards.
  • (DL002) Some Intel NIC (e.g.,Intel i225V) do not support Windows Server but for client OS (e.g. X12SAE/ X12SAE-5… and so on)
  • (DL003) Ucmcx driver for UCM-UCSI ACPI Device (ACPI\VEN_ITE&DEV_8853) only supports manual installation on C9Z590-CG(W), X12SAE-5, X12SCA-5F… and so on. [FAQ:]
  • (DL004) According to the Intel latest graphic driver readme describes that support for Client OS Windows 10 and onwards only. For the Windows Server OS, it may install successfully but not be validated.
  • (DL005) For the specific platform (e.g., Tatlow-X12STH, X12STW..and so on) about the Intel graphic driver for the Windows Server OS, it needs the specified version to support.
  • (DL006) Need the Intel Network PV 26.7 to support WS2022 and 26.8 or onward to support W11 officially (subject to change without notice); may need to install the network driver manually on the 26.6 version because the install button is hidden. [FAQ:]
  • (DL007) Intel SST (Smart Sound Technology) driver for Multimedia Audio Controller (e.g., VEN_8086&DEV_A0C8) only supports manual installation for project (e.g., X12STN) [FAQ:]
  • (DL008) Need to install drivers manually for SIO, PSE, SoC NIC..and so on of the Elkhart_Lake_A3SEV-2C/4C-LN4 projects. [FAQ:] [FAQ:]
  • (DL009) Intel® RSTe Virtual Controller Driver (VEN_8086&DEV_A37C) need to install manually for same projects (e.g., B2SC1, X11SCD… and so on.) [FAQ:]
  • (DL010) Need to install drivers manually on Windows client 10 and 11 for Intel NIC E823 on the X12SDV Series projects (Idaville platform).[FAQ:]
  • (DL011) For X13SCx(Catlow platform), you may encounter BSOD "KERNEL SECURITY CHECK FAILURE" while installing newer INF driver(e.g, 10.1.19591.8417) on WS2022 which has been fixed by updating build version 20348.2227 or beyond or installing KB5034129.[FAQ:]
  • (OR001) TPM 2.0 is an essential requirement for Windows 11 installation. [FAQ:]
  • (OR002) Although Catlow(e.g., X13SCW-F) and Whitley(e.g., X12SPW-TF) can install Windows client OS (e.g., 11) successfully but there's no guarantee for further functionality due to it's out of spec of OSPOR.
  • (PL001) X12STL-IF and X12STL-F (Tatlow platform) do not support processor graphics due to Hardware design limitations.
  • (PV001) For the projects which have the suffix "F" which stands for BMC supported, would be validated and focused with the built-in graphic controller of the BMC Chipset mainly (e.g., Aspeed)
  • (PR001) Windows Server 2019 (Intel Xeon W Only) for IOTG Comet Lake
  • (PR002) Windows Server 2022 (Only Intel Core i5-i9 Processors with R680E) for IOTG Alder Lake-S (e.g., X13SAZ-F w/ PCH R680E)
