when I'm trying to boot from network it finds the server, load the boot image, but then shows the error in the title and not allowing to continue.

I've tried the solutions in the links bellow but it doesn't work.

I got the drivers for HP's supporter so I doubt it's the wrong one (it's HP Z1 G9 Tower Desktop PC)

other ways to insert the driver?

    Update: apparently the driver was wrong. I've downloaded default Intel network driver, used the first link and it worked.

    the link again:
