My guess is that there's an incompatibility with Intel HD Graphics P530 when its real driver is used (as opposed to the generic one in Safe Mode), but here's what happens with standalone MC 0.44 against Intel ME 11.0.12:
RD works for the boot screens, boot menu, BIOS and Server 2016 Safe Mode, but all attempts to actually use it for a Server 2016 in non-Safe Mode results in "Connected" but with a black screen. Changing Image Encoding has no effect. Ctrl-Alt-Del shows nothing.
Using the Windows Remote Desktop (not to be confused with Mesh's) works fine. Video driver is current.
Any ideas, because I'm at a loss. Thanks!
