you can try updating driver manually extract .exe and using device manager search for the inf file and update if that does not work and I see the actual driver is way to old 2.8.13
try at least 2 previous previous version before installing the latest one
you right now are trying to install version
Version: 188.8.131.52 (C) (4 Feb 2009)
so I can recommend you try
1. Version: 184.108.40.206 (13 Jul 2007)
2. Version: 220.127.116.11 (25 Feb 2008)
3. and latest the one you are trying to install
all versions here

I extracted the drivers and updated manually the 'HP NC373i Virtual Bus Device' under 'System devices' in device manager.
I was then able to update the nic drivers executing the installation package.
So there is an issue with these latest drivers on fresh installs of Windows 2008 (std us) x64 and x32 Server.

On fresh installs of Windows 2008 32/64 i had the same error. I had to install the driver from psp8.15b first because it would gave me the 'hp virtual bus driver' in device manager. From there I could update this to the latest as described above.

Thats if my girl will let me leave her on Valentines day!

Sorry for the confusion.
I got the same error as you got but the OS i used was Windows 2008 Standard Server x32 and x64.
Anyway, here are my steps that i took to install the latest nic driver (post psp8.15b) on these servers;
As I could not install the latest NIC driver directly, which gave me the same error as you had, I installed the nic driver coming with psp8.15b.
This driver installed without error so now I got the 'HP virtual bus' driver thing in device manager.
Now I extracted the latest NIC package (extracting means executing the package and choose extract the files to a location). This extraction got me the plain drivers which I could now use to manually update the virtual bus driver.
After manually updating, only the virtual bus driver, I executed the install package again and now I could install without error.
To me there is a problem with the latest nic package -> 18.104.22.168 (C) 4 Feb 2009 for x32 and x64 Windows 2008.
As far as I tested on 3 fresh Windows installs the driver would not install without error.
