Good news!

Now read over the next steps in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 so you remember what to do next when it completes.

If it isn't ready to connect to the network then install your Ethernet adapter driver, get online, enable Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3), then Check for Updates, install all Important and Optional Updates with requested restarts.

After each restart go back to Check for Updates and install all of them (except Bing) until there are no more.

I can't get the internet to work. I zipped the file and it doesn't detect the network adapter.

windows 7 shows 451gb free of 465gb. That means this computer is wiped fully clean right?


I recalled every other time, it was like 420gb or 410gb free when i reinstalled it.

Did you look at the network icon in the bottom right system tray to see if you're connected?

You need to click on Extract files at the top of the Explorer window, Extract them to your Desktop, then once extracted rightclick Setup to Run as Administrator, install the driver properly.
