Restore from a Windows 2008R2 Network Image

I have, without success, been trying to restore a Proliant DL360 G7 Server with a Windows 2008 R2 network image.  I boot from the Windows 2008R2 DVD and choose the REPAIR option.  From there I TRY to load the network drivers(Broadcom 1GB)  I downloaded and extracted from the HP support site, but the driver load fails. 


I can restore from a Windows Image that is stored locally with no problem (different drive). 


For those of you that have been able to restore a server from a Windows Network Image, what am I doing wrong?  Any and all help would be GREATLY appreciated!

Please can you look through the guide and verify your actions.

Be aware that HP usually provide drivers in *.exe files. You should unpack them first to get a list of files including *.inf file.
