How to enable SR-IOV (intel 82599 adapter) Hyper-V CORE

I am trying to configure SR-IOV, I am following the document from Intel, the servers are Windows 2012 Hyper-V CORE. The documentation says that from Device Manager / Network Adapters / Advanced / SR-IOV Value Enabled.

Since they are CORE Hyper-V I don't have access to GUI and can't be installed. That being said, can anyone please let me know how do I enable this setting?

Here are the steps from intel - Page 9

thanks I have already seen this blog. I am just trying to find a way to get the "Intel" SR-IOV setting enabled. I can't do it through device manager no GUI so I need to find a way to do it through PS. If you look at the link with the PDF you will see the step where SR-IOV is enabled at the NIC level.

Creating the switch and binding it to the NIC should do this. You don't normally need to take extra steps. The driver knows what's going on.
