WinPE 5.0 Wizard error (NIC driver) attempting to boot on a Dell Optiplex 330

Receive error: "The following networking device did not have a driver installed. PCI\VEN14E4&DEV_169B&SUBSYS_02201028&REV_02".

Need an x64 driver that works with the Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx for use in booting WinPE 5.0.  

I've created the boot media using MDT 2013 Deployment Workbench. Have imported several different Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx drivers to "Out-of-Box Drivers" folder and updated Deployment Share but still can't boot to WinPE 5.0 on the Optiplex 330. Opti 380 boots WinPE just fine using same DVD.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Have you used this version of the driver?

Where did you source the drivers you've tried already?

Thanks
I have imported and tried this version as well. One thing that I haven't tried is removing the other drivers and only trying them one at a time. My "out-of-box" folder has several versions in it.  I believe I read somewhere that WinPE doesn't attempt to install more than one driver, it attempts to install one and goes on, working or not.

Further research indicates that less is more. In this case removing the drivers and letting WinPE use its own driver, not one imported from the manufacturer, even though it's the recommended one, it fails to install.
