Issues PXE Booting to WDS Server in the Windows PE environment

We are trying to load a boot image to a specific laptop and continually get this error when booting to "Deploy Image"

WdsClient: An error occurred while starting networking: a matching network card driver was not found in this image. Please have your Administrator add the network driver for this machine to the Windows PE image on the Windows Deployment Services server.

I have followed the KB article - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923834 

I can get the system to pull an IP after manually loading the network Drivers but when i submit changes, the computer restarts and I get the same error.
Can anyone suggest a solution to my issue?

When I try to inject the drivers on the WDS server, It gives me an error code of 0x800703fb
I have included the details of the error message.

Found out that WDS needed to be completely disabled and WAIK needed to be upgraded to version 1.1
