Yea, the best way is to remove the card before installing. But if you are already poast this point yo ucan disable the device.
Out of curiousity.....What are you trying to accomplish by this? Perhaps, if given a goal, there might be another solution for what you are ultimatly trying to do...

there is no need to do this. you can update network card drivers after windows installation or disable the hardware in device manager.
