    Just installed this build on my HP m9630f and can't seem to get the thing to connect to the internet. Says my NIC card is missing drivers. Have it on Dual Boot with Vista Ultimate x64 which works fine. Any hints, I'm quite a novice at this . Please be kind, no nasty pokes, I'm sensitive as well.........

    Download the x64 Vista drivers. Windows 7 is backwards compatible with Windows Vista's Driver Base.

    Try what Kyle said, or you can also try updating the driver from Windows Update using the ethernet port.

    Welcome to Windows 7 Forums btw. :)

    Having x64, and working with win 7, seems to work good, but i have a device that isn't picking up and I can discover it via net or backing up my vista drivers(all-ms drivers & notebook(acer)) anyway on finding out which driver i'm needing? Thanks.

    To find out what it is, go to the device in device manager, right click, properties, details tabs, and Hardware IDs in the drop down menu. Take the "DEV_####" id, and google it. This may get you an answer.

    Thanks Kyle... Yes I've done it, and coz this driver is new to me, I've "googled' for it... and here's what I found if anyone else has the same problem... (its a bug). If anyone has a fix or knows a fix, please let me know. I like a clean, tidy DM.

    **Mod, if I've off topic from this forum msg, sorry, and please move where it should be placed. I put it here as the topic is "Build 6801 x64"... which I am running with this problem.
    Thanks!
