We are in the process of resurrecting a legacy windows driver for a 10Gb PCI NIC card and would like to get HLK Windows Certification for WinServer 2016 and WinServer 2019. The issue that we are running into is that the capital requirement to run the test is more than we can afford. I'm hoping that my understanding of the hardware requirements are incorrect. Below I have included the requirements that I read from the Microsoft page.
