    After adding an SSD to my computer and installing Win 7 Ulti 32bit (x17-59463), plus Daz Activation, this installation will not connect to the internet. What I get is:

    "Windows cannot find Driver for Network Adapter."

    When I boot from the HDD, it still connects, I am sending this post with it.
    I have installed several Win 7 Ulti 32bit before, and never had any problem....

    Thanks....

    Need Hardware IDs to help yeh.

    Hmm, try providing us with the hardware ID. We can look for official drivers for you.

    Either press [Windows Key]+[Pause/Break] or right-click "My Computer" and select "Properties."
    Or open the "System" section in Control Panel.
    From here, you can open "Device Manager" (should be on the left side).

    In the device manager, you can view detailed information on all the hardware and peripherals connected to your computer.
    In your case, you should see something of a yellow warning triangle for some wireless adapter. Right-click it and select "Properties."
    You can then view the hardware ID for your adapter in the "Details" tab.
    Choose the "Hardware IDs" item, and you should see something like this:
    Code:
    PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_1692&SUBSYS_04001028&REV_01
    PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_1692&SUBSYS_04001028
    PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_1692&CC_020000
    PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_1692&CC_0200
    Choose the longest one (the first one, and hit [Ctrl]+C to copy that text.
    Then come back to the forums and paste the ID here. We can help find the proper driver for your setup.
    Windows 7 x86, right?

    Thanks, but I found out, it was the (newly downloaded) Win 7 DVD I used for installation.
    I re-installed an older DVD that I still had and.... everything is working fine.

    I apologize for letting you write all this for nothing....

    definitely not for nothing. The thread will serve its purpose to another person searching Google or what have you. Google indexed this thread at least once before you replied a second time hehe
