win7 fresh install prob

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I installed win7 just fine and the first thing I did was try to install the updates, the internet picks up when I install the network controller but right after installing updates it gets rid of the network adapter? Then I try re-downloading the network controller driver and it just won't install.

Have you tried running the update again? Sometimes my windows update does odd things, but I just have it check again and it will usually fix itself

Make sure you are only installing the necessary updates and not all the "Recommended" and "Optional" updates... sometimes Windows includes hardware driver updates that you don't need an will mess up your existing driver installation. Hope that helps...good luck.

Thanks, I will try that. Also, someone recommeneded to just download SP1 for win7 instead of doing all the updates, would this be enough updating or should I also do the necessary udpates too?

SP1 will have all the previous updates included in it, so I would say go ahead and install that first and then check for just the Necessary updates.. I personally always install the recommended updates too, but never the optional updates, or anything that includes hardware driver updates.
