BL20P NIC - Incorrect Driver


I had a company install 4 BL20P blades for me last summer and just discovered that one of them is recognising it's NIC as an AMD PCNET PCI adpater. Old school...

I'm running Win 2003 server on this blade and it refuses to allow me to update to the correct driver.

I've located the correct 'inf' from HP and attempted to install it...
Using the HP installer, I get a "will not install because hardware is not on this system"
Using the manual update, Windows tells me that the driver is not compatable with the hardware.

Any ideas on hacking Windows to see the NIC correctly?

Also... I'm running VMWare GSX on this blade... Win2003 is running on top of that.

10 MB ... eek! :)

Just because you fail to find the humor in it, right now, doesn't mean that it is not funny.
