Thanks to Keith Combs for his post as it provided me the solution.

  • Install the Intel Ethernet driver from 6irf24ww_764.  You are running the installer but it does not really install it.  However, it does put the driver on disk so you can manually select it later. 
  • Start |  type Device Manager | Press ENTER

  • Hey Dan,

    Have you had to install this device on Server 2012 yet?  I had it working, but a recent update destroyed my NIC again, and these instructions with more recent drivers don't seem to work.  Any ideas?
