NC7782 Driver error: File not found (ml580 -> DL380G4)

The system cannot find the file specified

This is the error I get When I restored a windows 2000 server image from ML570G1 to a DL380G4 with symantec Livestate recovery. All went fine and normally I only need to reinstall the NIC drivers and OK, but this time it did not. Whatever I do, I connot install the drivers and therefore cannot connect to the network. First we thought it was a CPQteam problem but after searching the forum it seems to be a Broadcom problem. I tried uninstalling from Safe Mode, forcing to take a driver, nothing helps. It even seems it rather uses the OEM17.inf file instead. But still the dreaded question mark appears in device manager.
does anyone have an idea?

To check if it was NIC or server related I disabled the embedded NIC's in the BIOS and added a 3com 3C905C-TX NIC. But even this gives the same error and is displayed with a question mark in the device manager.

I wonder why it has a problem with all NIC drivers
