Hi, 

If ESXi does not support the NIC, it will not work in windows 2019 running on the ESXi.
ESXI presents a virtualized NIC to the guest-os( in your case Windows 2019)

I'm not aware of a driver for that NIC that works with ESXi 7.0.
Best bet is likely to replace the NIC with a supported (or known as working) one.

If the NIC you have (Tplink) is not in the list I gave you, it is not supported by ESXi 7.

It might work on windows 2019, but that also depends if the NIC is supported under Windows 2019
