Grid K1 support/drivers for Windows Server 2016 and/or Hyper-V Server 2016
We are in the process of rolling out a small VDI pilot solution to an environment which (if successful) may ultimately serve 20,000+ users. The solution will use Microsoft Hyper-V as the hypervisor running under either Windows Server 2016 or Hyper-V Server 2016; the VMs will leverage RemoteFX. The pilot hardware is a Dell PE730 with a Grid K1. The issue is that we cannot seem to find the drivers for the hypervisor - I see Windows Server 2012 but nothing indicating 2016 support for Window Server or Hyper-V Server. Are there drivers for the Grid K1 for Windows Server 2016 and/or Hyper-V Server 2016? And if so where might one obtain them? Thank you and I greatly appreciate any help you could render.

Beginning with release [b]R375[/b], the NVIDIA drivers [b]no longer support the NVIDIA GRID K2, K1, K520, and K340[/b] products (from driver readme, but there is support for other and older cards with GK104 (K10,K5000,K4200) and GK107 (K420,K600,K2000)). Probably the first and the last officially supported drivers for win2016 and GRID K* are [b]R367[/b] U4/U5 (369.26/369.49), search under beta&older + quadro + k5000 + win2016 on standard driver download page ([url]http://www.nvidia.com/Download/Find.aspx?lang=en-us[/url]).

@mcerveny: Thank you very much for your helpful response, I do appreciate it. I have installed the U5 driver on Windows Server 2016 Datacenter (full desktop experience) and it appears to be functioning as expected. Also thank you for the link to RachelBerry's blog post, it was quite enlightening. Thanks.

Hello, what is about Windows Server 2016 Hyper-V Edition, this is Core? We have inject the Drivers via SCCM Driver Package and it works but is it supported?
