You will not be able to install GTX 1080 drivers on Shadow if your Shadow did not come with an GTX 1080. 


From what you have described, it sounds like your Shadow comes with our Quadro P5000, as it is designed for data center use and offers an equivalent amount of computing power compared to the GTX 1080.


You’ll need to use the Quadro P5000 drivers instead.
