Whenever you wish to install an OS that did not come with a computer you need to first see if drivers are available. Never assume this. The problem is worse with netbooks.

Microsoft is pretty good with providing drivers on the install DVD, but only for devices that existed when the the media was produced. For computers built later you must go to the manufacturer. In many cases they choose not to provide them.
