To go to generic kernel on HOSTING server which has the ixgbe NIC:

apt-get install -y linux-image-generic linux-headers-generic
mv /etc/grub.d/06_OVHkernel /etc/grub.d/25_OVHkernel
update-grub
apt-get install -y make gcc
BUILD_KERNEL=$(sed -n -e '/vmlinuz-.*-generic/p' /boot/grub/grub.cfg | sed -e 's/.*vmlinuz-\(.*-generic\) .*/\1/' | head -n 1)
cd /usr/local/src
wget https://downloadmirror.intel.com/146...-4.3.13.tar.gz
tar xzvf ixgbe-4.3.13.tar.gz
cd ixgbe-4.3.13/src
make CFLAGS_EXTRA="-DIXGBE_NO_LRO" BUILD_KERNEL="$BUILD_KERNEL" install
update-initramfs -tuk $BUILD_KERNEL
reboot

This should help I believe: http://ask.xmodulo.com/compile-ixgbe...el-fedora.html

Except download this driver: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/14687

Check this:

According to OVH Staff, the 2016 Hosting servers have a motherboard with an integrated NIC which is still not supported directly by the kernel. You may need to compile and enable the "ixgbe" module before rebooting into the new kernel.

Hi just wondering if anyone else gets this issue with the 2016 32gb hosting range. Everytime I attempt to install orginal kernel for the distrubtion I get that the hardware is not supported.

If you try and install it via SSH your server doesn't boot. My guess is I got no choice but to use OVHs kernel but fallen in love with virtualizor and really would like to use it on my node.
