HPE ProLiant ML10 Gen9 Server

My development server motherboard died. So this time, instead of
getting an old windows machine out and making it a server I
decided to buy new.
I bought a HPE ProLiant ML10 Gen9 Server without disks or OS.
When I started to install 14.04* LTS I got as far as configuring
the NIC and the install said that no NIC was installed.
OK, thinks I, driver problem. To the HPE website. They have a
driver for Red Hat or SUSE, but even if I download it for a try I
can't figure out how to merge it with the 14.04 install disk.

Thoughts/Suggestions ?

*I am staying with 14.04 until I get a huge php legacy
application converted to PHP7

Are they still using broadcom nics? I bet that's the problem if so.
Personally, I turn those off in the bios and install a real nic. Preferably
Intel. Broadcom nics are the herpes of network adaptors.
