Ive had loads of strange problems with the broadcom Nics, try disableing everything in the advanced section of the drivers properties. Failing that stick in a different NIC.

HI
I found a special ris driver for the NIC at the bordcom homepage ( only inject that driver to your Win PE image )
Funny that you cannot download the driver from HP webside - for the DL 360 G5 Server.
