I recently did a clean Windows 7 64 bit install on the second partition of a dual-boot set-up with XP. After updating BIOS and other required drivers, one issue persisted and that was, there was no Network connection at start-up. No matter what I did, I couldn’t find remedy. After performing the following, I have re-booted successfully twice in row. See attachment for what I did. Hope it works for you…
