Network driver?

I tried to partition my mac laptop (via bootstrap) so I could run windows on it, but now when it boots up and I try to connect to the internet, it gives me an error saying the network driver/adapter isn't there. What does that mean cause I can connect to the wi-fi fine on my mac.

Thanks...

Thanks,

I think I messed up something. I tried to partition my MAC laptop to run Windows on it.

I tried to run that system spec thing on it, this is the error (attachment)

I'm wondering if I messed up and should just go to the apple store and have them do it? What do you think?

Hi there .. I understand the Message you are getting from Windows for the Net Framework do not worry about that .. You should have a Drivers Disc that came with your Computer .. If so that should resolve your net issue ..

I didn''t buy a new computer, Im trying to install windows 7 on my mac computer. So I created a windows startup disk using ? How to Create a Bootable Windows OS Installation Disc ? - YouTube as a guide
then I used that disk to install Windows 7 on the partition.
Thats what I tried to do but I think I messed things up a bit, Do you think I should just get
Amazon.com: Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64bit (OEM) System Builder DVD 1 Pack: Software
Any use that?

The reason that tool failed is because you haven't been able to update windows because you have no internet, catch 22 sort of thing.

You need to look in Device manager and find your network adapter, it will probably have next to it.

Then just follow this tutorial,
