So you know where to look for the optional updates right - that's where WU offers drivers

Windows 7 is pretty good in finding drivers.

I would install Seven, run Windows Update including all optional updates as many times as needed for Windows to tell there's nothing more to update, then check the device manager to see if I'd need to go hunting.

Win7 is installed, Windows is Updating, Drivers from WU, then hunt.

The plan is already in motion.

Hi again, So I have managed to find some of the drivers and they work. I found the Realtek Ethernet Driver but I get an error every time I install which says "findfile failed". I also could not find the USB Controller.

Hi synysterlulz

PM me the belarc advisor report (you'll need to zip it first) - don't post it, your lic key is there.
or copy the belarc information about the two devices and post it (you can copy and paste)

What devices did you have to hunt down and where did you get them? (besides the NIC and USB)
