Could you please upload your msinfo32.exe info for us? Enter msinfo32.exe into the start menu, and select File>Save. Right-click on the file, and select Send to>New compressed folder.

Then attach that folder to a new post in this thread.

It seems like Windows cannot find a driver for your Mac hardware. I am hoping we can find a driver online, if we know the network adapter model.

I only hope that Apple uses network adapters from other companies...good luck trying to find Windows drivers for Apple hardware.

Try installing these drivers for the Ethernet: NVIDIA - Download Drivers

You will have to copy them onto a USB drive or CD and then transfer them.

Then, hard wire in and let Windows find drivers for the Wireless automatically.

Sorry for going OT on someone else's topic, but could you possibly tell me which ethernet drivers I should download?

Hello,

The closest I could find was this: Broadcom.com - Ethernet NIC 4401 Driver Downloads

Try downloading the Vista 32-bit drivers. You may need to install them in compatibility mode for Vista.

Compatibility Mode
