yellow bangs on Win Srvr 2008 R2 server core after installing PRO/1000 PT

I get yellow bangs in remote Device Manager after attempting to install a PRO/1000 PT NIC in a Dell PowerEdge 2900 III

, BIOS rev 2.6.1 up to date. The OS is Windows Server 2008 R2 datacenter server core, and is a hyper-v host. It has 2 Broadcom nextxreme II 5704c onboard NICs.

 

To start, I downloaded the latest driver PROWinx64.exe dated 4/29/10, version 15.2 and ran the install on the local console.  It appeared to complete fine. Then I saw the yellow bangs on the NICs in remote DM. Sure enough, Windows didn't recognize the devices, and i was unable to assign them to virtual networks in hyper-v.  Here's a dump of everything I can think of.  Thanks in advance for any suggestions you have on solving this problem.

 

Running adaptchk.exe

 

Intel(R) PRO/1000 PT Dual Port Server Adapter #2:
Cannot find a supported driver for this adapter.  Make sure that the latest Intel® Network Connections PCI Express driver is installed. For the latest drivers and a complete list of networking adapters supported by this utility please see support.intel.com.

 

BIOS reports the PT NIC has IRQ 5 and 6 assigned.

 

PROSetCL.exe can identify all 4 NICs
