I have an HP ProLiant DL 370 server G6 which was used as a  VM Ware server for a host of applications. The application are no longer needed so I removed the old virtual servers and loaded a new version of Win Server 2008 r2
I noticed a driver in Device Manager of the new server I loaded has a yellow question mark that says Base System Device
When I check the ID it states its a PCI card. I assume I download this driver network from HP? Do I use the software for VM or for Windows Server 2008r2?

Also does anyone have a trick to get external hard drives that have usb connection connected to a VM server?
I edited and added a USB connection in VM - I shutdown the PC - I connected the USB drive and turned it in- and rebooted the Server
