Server 2016 – A service installation section in this INF is invalid

After adding a PCI wireless card to a server and installing the manufacturer drivers it will not work and Device Manager reports Unknown device and the drivers are not installed with a “Service installation section in this INF is invalid” message.

Turns out the wireless features are not installed by default on Windows Servers now and once added back re-add the manufacturer drivers as normal to get working again.
