Unrecognized "Ethernet Controller"s in Device Manager

I have just finished the installation of a c7000 blade chassis. To start I inserted on BL460c G6 blade, installed Windows 2008 Server Enterprise x64. Finally, I ran the HP ProLiant Support Pack to install drivers/software. The chassis has one HP 1GB Ethernet Pass-Thru Module for c-Class BladeSystem (406740-B21) inserted in rear slot 1 and appears to be working. The blades have two on-board NICs.

Now I'm left with two "Ethernet Controller"s under other devices. Obviously, this is resulting in a lack of network connectivity.

I've actually gone so far as to try all of the 1GB NIC drivers offered under the BL460c driver section with no luck.

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? It could be something simple enough that I just missed, but it seems like I just need a driver.

That is certainly what I needed. Thought the NICs were just GB and never even looked at the 10GB variety. Doh.

Thanks
