Board has 2 of the above mentioned network interfaces. Both work flawlessly with the drivers provided by Microsoft in Server 2012R. But when I try to install the drivers downloaded from Supermicro and from Intel It says it cannot install because no Intel NICs were found.

Anybody ever deal with this stupidness?

TIA

MS drivers are low grade. I'd rather use the OEM drivers.
Since when? Unless you have some specific use-case or toolkit requirements the builtin are generally just fine, often the OEM get out of date quicker than the builtin that are updated with windows/microsoft updates.
I mean you said yourself they both work flawlessly why fix what isn't broken.

Edit: That being said you could download the entire driver cd just to see if you somehow got the wrong one:

(click on the "Complete Drivers CD ISO can be downloaded here.")
