HELPP Problems with Connecting with new Rig

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
This may be a long story but if you read it you may get a good laugh ;D

I just recently bought and successfully assembled my new computer with an i5 3570k and AsRock z77 pro4 Mobo and used my living room tv as the monitor (no internet) was using my laptop and exHDD to do everything for it while i used hooked it up to what i thought was the only monitor in the house.(updated bios thanks to my laptop and eXHDD) biggrin.gif
Because this was my first build and i had no idea as to how to go about installing an OS from a USB, i was at this for hours trying to work with linux and no internet... installed the OS to the HDD it booted from (love partitions) then i somehow found a computer monitor cord bc i couldnt stand not having internet connection and moved to the other room with a mini tv i hadnt used in dummb long... hooked it up and managed to get on the internet.......

Now Here Is The Problem:

i only installed the OS to the exHDD bc my system couldnt recognize my SSD (thought it was a driver thing, turned out i just needed to plug it into another port on the MOBO ) BUT I WAS ABLE TO successfully connect to the internet booting from the exHDD with linux...

Then i began to take a stab at windows..............I should probly mention i dont have an ODD (Dont ask.....please lol)
with the USB boot/install as before....

Managed to get it to install smoothly (onto the SSD)... but the kicker is it wont let me connect to the rest of the world >.>.... would it be the drivers from my AsRock or something ? and is there anyway to go about taking care of this? Mounting iso's instead of being able to pop in a disk is mur.der. -_-

OK i'm sorry

I read that but couldn't get where the issue was from the swarm of information you've provided, Is it an issue with your SSD, installing windows or connecting to the internet?

EDIT - http://winsupersite.com/article/windows-7/install-windows-7-with-a-usb-memory-key

That'll install windows 7, you have to prepare your USB key to make it bootable.

yea it was pretty bad but that was the story of tonight lol

I have windows installed but it wont let me connect to the internet bc of a an issue with my network adapter, which is on the MOBO, i believe... ill have to get back to you on that bc its about time to hit the hay. but it let me connect with ubuntu, which is why im confused..

Ok you'll need to install the drivers off of your motherboard CD. Also, go into your device manager and check in there to see if you've got devices that aren't installed correctly biggrin.gif

If you have the OS already installed, which I think you've pointed out. Then take the disc the Motherboard came with and install the drivers required to enable the drivers for the NIC. Otherwise, go to the manufacturer's website and download it and store it to a USB from another machine then copy it over to the workstation and install the drivers. A reboot may be required to get the NIC running.

You're trying mate biggrin.gif

Yeah the store idea would kinda work, but you should be about to do it yourself, although WGman, you're showing promise on the helping people, so keep it up biggrin.gif

I appreciate the help everyone! I was able to connect to the web and actualy the MF website idea to download the driver may have been the last thing i thought of (not that i implemented that idea, it was pretty good)

My baby is up and running =]
