Yes, that specific device id (0x15fd) indicates the NVM/eeprom is blank.

The I225 adapter family should be mostly supported by igc(4); it's hard to say in your case because it looks like the NVM is invalid so the driver won't do anything with the hardware. You may need a BIOS update that has a valid NVM in it (or maybe redo it since it might not have happened correctly), or there could be some other hardware issue that requires an RMA.

Is this adapter supported or is there something I can do to make it work?

Thanks in advance
