    I called tech support, they did it different.

    I hit F12, selected some options, pounded the space bar, and now I need to call back when its done, apparently the drivers need to be installed in a particular order.

    That depends if you are using a Retail cd or an OEM Recovery cd.
    We have screenshots at work on an internal page but mostly we tell customers to just follow Q articles on support.microsoft.com like Q316941
