10 GbE Ethernet Driver Download Page

Only 10GbE cards purchased from Small Tree will work with the 10GbE Ethernet drivers listed on this page. These same drivers also apply to our 10GbE based ThunderNet products.

Drivers for SANLink2 products can be found at:

"http://www.promise.com/Support/downloadcenter"


For Small Tree (PCI-E) 10GbE cards and 10GbE based ThunderNet ONLY

Only Intel based systems are supported. PPC is no longer supported.

Only Mac hardware running the 64bit kernel is supported, i.e. Mac Pro 3,1 and newer.
In other words, Mac Pro/Xserve 1,1 and 2,1 models are no longer supported.

Please click the link below to download the latest OS X driver. After the disk image mounts, double click the installer icon to begin installation.



CAUTION:

On High Sierra you must remove the old Small Tree 10Gbe driver before you install the ones below.

Apple has a requirement that we place our driver under /Library/Extensions now

rather then the older /System/Library/Extensions directory/folder.

So before installing any driver below, execute the following from a "Terminal"

command on Mac OS:

rm -fr /System/Library/Extensions/SmallTreeIntel8259x.kext/

You will need to select the operating system driver for your system.

Please note Intel does not support 10 Gigabit for all Operating Systems. We only support Operating Systems that Intel supports. For example, currently there is no driver support for 32 or 64 bit Windows XP.

Linux requires either a distribution with support built in for Intel's 10 GbE PCIe cards or a distribution with a 2.6.24 or newer kernel and the ability to build a module for the kernel.
