    Read up in the thread for instructions on finding the PnP ID for the device you're having issues with. Post those IDs here and I'll get you a driver.
    when you say PnP ID, are you saying you want me to do the same thing you told NxJ to do?

    baarod, thanks so much for your help but i figured it out. running the exe wasn't enough, i had to then go into device manager and install the driver manually from the manufacturer name listed in the drop-down. thanks!

    No 64-bit support. You'll have to contact Curitel or your carrier or use 32-bit. Unless you have 4GB RAM or more you will see zero benefit from struggling against 64-bit.
    Not actually! There's nothing that dictates that "you must have" 4gb or more installed. With the 64bit Windows the answer is "you can run more then" 4gb if you actually have the need for any super sized amounts of ram like Cad or something really memory hungry. The average desktop will still run fine on 2gb seeing the slight edge moving upto 3-4gb when loading things up a bit.

    As for the other problem of detection both 32bit and 64bit RCs still won't connect with one of the routers placed inbetween modem and nic card. I replaced the ISP provided modem rather fast to see the 64bit as well as 32bit Windows even XP and Vista online. No drivers required for the new Motorola SB5101. 7 automatically detects and install driver for the nic card on it's own!

    As far as the 64bit RC everything fell into place immediate there while the x86 is being stubborn with one addon device. That just happens to use 32bit device drivers and plays tuff on the 32bit side?

    The inplace upgrade repair install not necessary but to see the 7 boot splash screen restored after using EasyBCD to add the 32bit in went smooth as well with the need for reinstalling one thing only namely video drivers.

    So what are the advantages of running 64-bit with less than 4GB RAM? Here's a hint, driver and software compatibility aren't. Neither is memory usage. The jury's still out on mainstream performance. All told, unless you have specific 64-bit requirements or 4GB+ RAM, everyone is better off with 32-bit for now. Especially the n00bs. There's nothing extra special or l33t about running 64-bit. It won't solve your financial woes or make you a better lover. It's just address space folks -- and a lot of headaches for very little return.

    The largest problems were seen with the first and later second version of Windows to see a 64bit edition(XP Pro 64 2005, Vista 64) where the drivers and little if any softwares have been seen. With 7 the 32bit emulation has certainly seen a large improvement over the previous as well as seeing more actual support.

    For the novice MS took that into consideration with 7 still seeing 32bit editions. For what comes after?

    The news may not be too good for those still looking at all the 32bit games and softwares stocked on store shelves with everyone else ranting on how wonderful their 64bit systems are running. But the move into the 64bit arena has to see 3rd party software companies get busy at their end.

    Maybe you can help. I downloaded W7 and so far I like it. There are just a few qwerks. Such as my mcafee wont load, nothing from my AT&T download page will load. When I go the downloads page I comes up blank and it says done. When I try to refresh it...it does the same thing. Is there something I'm doing wrong? I know it is not the website itself simply because it worked with vista.

    Thanks in advance

    First off welcome to the sevenforums! The initial problems to solve when first connecting online in 7 are the basics like adode flash player, Java runtime, adobe reader still won't open pdf files here, plus your active x control settings in IE 8 may need to see a few changes from the defaults.

    For the AT&T download page you will need to first go through their home page if you are trying to open a link you saved and copied from XP or Vista into 7's own favorites. Once you relocate the page starting from there you can add into the favorites or onto the favorites bar at your descretion.

    With literally a mountain of links copied from one installation of 7 like from the 7000 builds into the user account>favorites on the RCs I run into this regularly. For any proprietary account you first login from the home page first there to get to where you want to be. Give that a try.

    hi guys. I am running a dual boot setup from win 64 to Win7. When I installed Win 7, did my drivers from vista install into windows 7?
