Windows Server 2008 Poweredge M520 - Reboot in loop after applying drivers SCCM OSD


I'm currently in the process of implementing System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1 at a customer site. It is used for deploying Dell PowerEdge Servers using the Dell Deployment Pack v 2.1. Using the DTK 4.3 I created a x64 Dell Boot image which includes all drivers needed for server deployment. I use Dell OM 7.3.0 to generate driver packages for every server model I need (M520, M610 and M600). Deploying Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2012 doesn't give any problems. 

When I try deploying Windows Server 2008 to a Poweredge M520 machine it seems that the drivers in the OM 7.3.0 (name of the driver package: PEM520-Microsoft Windows 2008 x64 SP2-OM7.3.0) don't get applied properly. When my server boots for the first time into Windows (during the OSD task sequence) it keeps on rebooting in an infinite loop. Asking to recover Windows every time it starts 

Using an older version of the OM (7.1.0 ) gives me the same result. 

Are there any known problems with the driver packages for Windows Server 2008 on M520? Or on any other hardware models? 

Kind regards,
