Windows did not detect any networking hardware.

So here it goes. my pc is HP Compaq SG3-351SC.and lately its gone reeaally slow, and its full fo junk, so i decided to clean it and reinstall windows. So when i bought this pc i made backup copy while making it i got whole punch of all kind of errors. and now that cd didnt work. couldnt install windows from that back up. so my friend borrowed me his cd that included windows 7 ultimate. i installed it and all went great. but i cant conect to internet, im gettin this message "windows did not detect any networking hardware"
i know its about some drivers. now when i go to control panels device manager, there is yellow triangle mark on ethernet controller. how can i fix this? i know i have messed this thing up, but plz can i still fix this mess?

Compaq SG3-300 Desktop PC series*-* Download drivers and software - HP Business Support Center

Then download the network controller driver, use a flash drive/cd to move the files to the computer you need them on.

Please fill out your system specs in your user profile area. Then take a screen shot of your disk management window and post it.

^^ what he said, to answer your question more directly though many people actually do that, it's called dual booting, but there is little point in it for the common user, it just takes up disk space.
We'll probably want to clean one of the installs off, but to do that we'll need more information which he asked for above.
