No problem, dww400. So now you need to find a 32 bit Vista driver. I was just checking out the HP website and they say they don't have Vista drivers for that machine. They do however say that you might get drivers through windows update. Have you tried update yet. I know that it installed a new driver for my graphics card so you might get lucky. More info from HP here: Updating Drivers and Software with Windows Update*

Good luck and please keep us posted. If it doesn't work maybe someone can come up with plan B.

I cant get on line to get to windows update. Maybe i could try telnet or the equivalent of hyper terminal in windows 7 somehow, but i don't know how to do either.

On Windows 7, download and install the equivalent Vista driver for your network adapter.

"nforce_5.10_winXP2000_whql_english" sounds like an nForce adapter to me... >.>;
So head over to NVIDIA and grab the nForce 32-bit Vista network adapter installation package, copy and paste it over to your Windows 7 partition, boot up Windows 7, and execute it like any other program. Follow the prompts and you're good to go.

Here's a driver I found in five seconds. I can't be entirely sure it's the one for your system.

I will be interested to hear what works, too, as I have the same problem. I am beta testing Windows 7 (version 7000 from Microsoft website) on an HP a520n and like the other poster, am finding the correct NForce2 drivers hard to locate.

I can't be sure this will work cause I haven't tried it yet, but I think you need to get a network card that supports vista. I know HP doesn't make vista drivers for their xp computers, and I'm not sure which manufacturers do. I've seen the same card on new egg.

I found drivers that worked for my system, here: download from Guru3D.com.

This thing contains all three items I needed - ethernet, SMBus, and audio - but just install the Ethernet. Then Windows Update will get you the proper ones for the other two things.

The HP a520n system does not support Aero Glass, though - the video card is detected as a "standard VGA card". You can go up to 1024 x 1280 resolution on a supported monitor, though.
