ML115 STOP:0x0000007B Server 2003 in place upgrade

My ML115 has been running quite happily for about a year. I now have a requirement to do a Windows 2003 server in place upgrade (to fix a Windows problem) - so I boot into Windows and start the upgrade. The machine reboots and I eventually get to the boot menu option to either boot the installed version of Windows or continue with the upgrade (Windows setup).

 

If I select the upgrade I am going through exactly the same process as I went through when I first built the server. I have the NVidia Mediashield drivers as referenced here http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=3683705&swItem=MTX-b697dfb5763f49d199166070a5&prodNameId=3683706&swEnvOID=1005&swLang=8&taskId=135&mode=4&idx=1 on a USB key using the internal USB slot forced to appear as a floppy drive. So as Windows setup starts I hit F6 and select the two drivers from the floppy. However I still get the blue screen and stop message. I have tried a couple of different versions of the drivers but same problem.

 

If I restart the machine and select the existing installation of Windows from the boot menu it boots into windows just fine.

 

Any ideas as to what I may have overlooked?

 

Thanks,
