Install Broadcom Advanced Control Suite in Hyper V R2

Just finish install Hyper V R2 (Free Edition) into Dell Poweredge 2950. Just wonder how can i do teaming in this dell server. Then i start to use google search and found out that i need to to use Broadcom Advanced Control Suite 3 (BACS) which available together with the NIC driver from Dell Website.
When i try to install BACS into the Hyper V R2, the installation prompt that it required .Net Framework in order to function properly.

Here is some command which you can use to complete this task:-

[Updated 3 Dec 2011]
a) oclist - to view the install roles & features in the system.
b) Start /w ocsetup NetFx2-ServerCore
c) Start /w ocsetup NetFx2-ServerCore-WOW64
(case sensitive and this will install .Net Framework 2.0) which require by Broadcom.

To run BACS, execute from this location
C:\Program Files\Broadcom\BACS\bacs.exe

Once you get the GUI, then you can start do your NIC teaming before you configure your Hyper V Virtual Network Switch.
