Windows 10 x64 / Windows Server 2009 Drivers ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I noticed something surprising - when I installed Windows 10 x64 on my notebook everything fine - all drivers found in device manager.

    However when I tried the same test using Windows Server 2019 - there were unknown devices. Plus searching for driver updates did not resolve.

    I thought that Windows 10 and Server 2009 shared the same kernel and drivers.

    What is the exact situation?

  • yes, server and desktop share the same kernel and are capable of loading and running the same drivers on the same hardware. The difference is on the windows update server where the driver authors must publish to server as a separate step. What you are seeing is drivers only published for desktop.
