Windows 7: How to install Win7HP x64 from disc on new SSD

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
 
 

Hi guys, just to let you know I have completed my transition Im now running from my SSD
It's was easier than expected thanks to some great advice from here.

I have hit 1 snag tho
Basically I can no longer connect to the internet via ethernet cable, Im on fine with wireless but for my PC I prefer to be Hard wired via ethernet...
I have downloaded the Realtek ethernet driver, installed it and rebooted but is still doesn't seem to want to work.
When I try to connect it tries to get me to put in a Username and Passord from my ISP, as far as I know I don't have one from them and certainly didnt require one when I took the PC out the box a couple of months ago....Any idea's?
Any help would be greatly received

Best regards Jay

If so then look on the bottom for its network name and password. If not there then you'll want to contact the service provider and get that information. It is odd that a wired connection is asking for this as normally the security situation is reversed wired no issue wireless you want to have a network name and password. Are you sure you are connected to your wireless network?

This is why it says to install connected via ethernet cable (only) in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
since it almost always starts up connected.

Now enable Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3) and watch for activity in the bottom right System Tray showing an animation of drivers loading. Click on it to monitor which drivers.

Then run all rounds of Important and Optional Windows Updates which will deliver the drivers Win7 wants - something you can do if connected wireless, so have you? There will also be performance updates required for making the drivers work correctly which patch many known hardware issues.

Hi Guys,

Not really sure what happened but it seems to be working fine via ethernet now, quite odd it wasn't working and then the next day after reading you're posts here I booted to take a look and it worked fine, strange but I'm happy enough with it now.

Really impressed with the SSD so far, super fast program loading times and boot times, I got my stopwatch out (sad I know) and timed a full reboot from pressing the button all thru shutting down and restarting and for the egg timer to disappear took 42sec's which included me inputting a password (and I'm not a fast typer) so really really pleased.

Thanks for all help and support here and I would recommend this upgrade to anyone

Best Regards

Jay

Are you running a Clean boot with only your AV and any sync starting with Windows in msconfig>Startup and >Services (after Hiding all MS Services). I have a 10 second boot on my SSD with a perfect install as compiled in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 and with no freeloaders starting with Windows.
