dl145 g2 and windows 2003 enterprise x64

I have installed the OS and am trying to install the correct drivers for the nics. i have tried the drivers on the cd shipped with the machines and the response on installation is that the hardware is not present or its for the wrong machine. i have tried all versions for x64 on the cd and all versions for the 32bit version as well. i have downloaded the current drivers from the web site and received the same result with them.

one specific example is:

i open the support cd and using the "auto open" site i navigate to the x64 version of the built in broadcom NIC. when i try to run it, it indicates its the broadcom 5721 built in ethernet. the response i get is "The image file .... is valid but is for a machine type other than the current machine".

Go to www.broadcom.com download nic drivers for the 5700 chipset x64 it should do the trick perfectly for ya!!

i had considered that and did not want to do that initially (thanks for suggesting it). i was hoping to find out why the drivers shipped did not work. since i have not gotten an answer to that yet i went ahead and got the drivers for the nic direct from broadcom as suggested.

anyone have an idea where i can get the one for the system interrupt controller?

yes that's the system board driver in the CD, or the intel link that was posted before
