see eg. http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/unified_computing/ucs/os-install-guides/windows/b_B-Series_Windows_Install/BSERIES-WINDOWS_appendix_0100.html#reference_A46B6C53C6DD46FCB525BFF0843358E4
The Cisco UCS B-Series Drivers DVD ISO image is available from the Cisco.com support site under Downloads > Servers - Unified Computing > Cisco UCS B-Series Blade Server Software > Unified Computing System (UCS) Drivers .
We are using Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager for this deployment and we did get Windows 2012 R2 to install without injecting any Cisco provided drivers from the DVD ISO into the boot image (I know, I'm surprised too!).
Once the blade is PXE booted, it downloads the Windows image and identifies the storage controller and completes the installation. However, the only concern we have is with the USB drivers and the fact that we cannot use the KVM once Windows installation is complete.
