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.

@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.


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?

Hi all,

I have Server 2016 datacenter with gui installed on a Dell R730 + Grid K2. My intended use of the server is hyper-v with remotefx vgpu windows 10 vms.

I can’t seem to find a driver that works properly. My Nvidia control panel doesn’t have the "manage 3d settings" tab and when I click the "manage 3d settings" hyperlink on the page it doesn’t do anything. I believe need this option to enable remotefx on windows 10 vms. I was optimistic about the R367 driver mentioned above but results are the same.

Does anyone know how to solve this?


I’m not really sure what you are going to achieve. For RemoteFX you won’t need the NV driver within the VM at all. NVCPL is not supported in RDS session with R367. This was introduced in a later driver version but I don’t see any reason why this should be relevant here.
