Are you sure your recovery DVDs work? As an extra precaution I would image your current Vista installation to an external disk. You can use any of those free programs: ( 7 Freeware Acronis True Image & Norton Ghost Alternatives ) and some more.

Yes I'm sure they work since I've used them a couple of times already. But as I wrote in my previous post I've installed Win 7 now so my original post isn't really an issue any more.

FYI I left the recovery partition as it was.

The installation went really smooth, probably the easiest ever for me actually. I have one small problem after the installation, well not really a problem since it's not causing me any problems but I'd like to fix it anyhow.

I get one unit in the Device-manager, that's not installed correctly. It's called PCI-memorycontroller. It wont update when I try the online update so I'm not really sure what to do. Is there any way I can find out what unit it is so I can find a driver for it?

Your welcome.

Glad that your installation went well.

Try updating your driver for the network interface controller (NIC), this should get rid of the yellow triangle.

Let us know if this helps.

Hi!

I've now tried to update the NIC, wich is a "Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller".

This, unfortunately, did nothing for me. The NIC itself whouldn't update alas it said that it had the most recent drivers. When trying to update the dirvers for the unrecogniced unit it just said, as before, that no driver where found.

You might try putting this in the Drivers Forum, someone there might have solved this issue.
