@Mark-XP I am planning to write E1000E driver by wrapping FreeBSD Driver around NetadapterCx like this driver https://github.com/coolstar/if_re-win , may be you might be interested in this project of porting NetadapterCx. I actually need someone with i219 Chipset to test as i lack anyboard with specific NIC myself

Now i am writing storport for Windows 2000,

Hello @Dibya, first please some clarifications:

- E1000E  is the name of the Linux driver  for a class of Intel® Gigabit Network NiCs (like th i219).

- NetadapterCx is the ,modern' MS driver-model for Win10 and later (in contrary to older ndis-model).

- The approach that you refer to above (https://github.com/coolstar/if_re-win) is an (NDIS-type?) wrapper ,around' the NetadapterCx-driver (in that case for a Realtec NiC) compatible with Win-XP (/2000 /Vista).

- Your plan now is to write such a wrapper around NetadapterCx-driver for i219.

I presume you're mentioning the (linux) e1000e above because you'll use it as a ,bonanza' of ideas and technics, is that correct?

What would be the concept then: direct wrapper (NetadapterCx -> NDIS) or detour FreeBSD (NetadapterCx ->FreeBDS -> NDIS)?

I've got only basic C knowledge (and even less in driver-implementations) to support, but within 2 or 3 weeks i'll migrate to the (above mentioned Z170) system with an i219 and will be able to test. And - if that's of any interest or advantage - it will house a Debian partition too.

And beside me, i'm quite sure there will be some others here (with an idled i219) eager for testing...

Someone has a working driver for WinXP for Intel I219-LM(PHY) or Intel I211-AT ? It can tell you how to patch version for WinXP 64-bit

For i211 this one did work with XP/32 on my rig: https://www.techspot.com/drivers/driver/file/information/15828/
