USB modems are notorious for not working on win server 2008.Did you try the generic windows modem driver?
In order to remove a USB driver properly:
In an admin command prompt:
Run following commands:
set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1
set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1
In menu: Show hidden devices.
Go to USB and remove all greyed out items.
