NICs not working after clean install of Win2k8R2+SP1 and PSP 8.7

Hi all,

 

I have a new Proliant ML350 G6 server, I'm trying install Windows Server 2008 R2 (with SP1 integrated) but using either the StartSmart DVD or just the vanilla Windows DVD I cannot get my two onboard NICs to work.  I must add that I did also run the latest firmware DVD (don't have the version in front of my but it's the most current one as of writing).  The NICs show up but they report that the cables are unplugged.  I know this isn't the case, infact the switch (ProCurve 2810G) sees the connections but the NICs on the server lights off and unresponsive.

 

Can I roll back the firmware?  Has anyone seen this before?  Sorry, I probably haven't had anywhere near the exposure to these things as others on here...
