RTL8125b nic driver for hyper-v server 2019?

Henry Li 1 Reputation point

I'm trying to use Hyper-V Server 2019 to replace VMWare at work. I installed the OS on a MSI B550 motherboard which has a RTL8125B NIC. I searched quite a while and couldn't find a driver for it. Tried the Windows Server 2012 driver on Realtek's website but no luck. I'm wondering if this NIC is totally a bad choice. If so, what's the suggestion for a PCIE NIC? Like Intel I350? Does Hyper-V Server 2019 has built-in driver for it?

    Microsoft does not do the driver development, the manufacturers do. Does not look to have support for Server 2019 but you could ask MSI if they plan to.
