When I insert the disc to install my Maximus V Gene motherboard drivers on Windows Server 2012 I get the following error:
Support CD Setup Program ASUS CD does not support this operating system(WNT_6.21_64.)
Anyone familiar with this error?
The error you get is from the outdated ASUS driver aggregator software. This is exactly why it is not recommended to install the drivers from the CD. Just download the latest drivers (separate for all components) from their manufacturer websites.
The only technology I am not 100% sure is supported under Server 2012 is Lucid Virtu. You could try installing Windows 7 drivers from
That's a desktop "gaming" motherboard, and most likely doesn't have (Windows 2012) Server drivers available for it, since they usually don't support server OS's on desktop boards.
If Asus doesn't offer them for download (which they don't seem to on support.asus.com), you'll have to dig them up manually from component manufacturers (like Intel, etc.), and/or force installs of the Asus-supplied Windows 8 drivers one at a time (if it lets you), and/or just NOT use certain devices you can't get drivers for.
