Windows 7: Restoring/using the other partition

After downloading the LAN driver, you'll need to rightclick on it to Extract All, then browse the extracted files to Setup, rightcllick to Run as Administrator.

If this fails, click to Ethernet device in Device manager, Choose Driver tab, Update driver by browsing to the extracted files until it picks up the driver - may be in the x64 folder.
Driver Install - Device Manager

If this fails, follow this tutorial to read the Hardware ID off the Device properties, determine which make and model, then google it for Windows 7 64 bit driver: Hardware Identification - Windows 7 Forums

The first 2 thing didn't work.


The third thing I don't know which one to download. Following the guide the stuff that was came up this:

0x8168 (device number), PCIe Gigabit Ethernet Family Controller (chip description), 0x10EC (vendor ID) Realtek Semiconductor (vendor Id).

Nothing was found for the multimedia controller except the vendor name (Animation Technologies Inc) and vendor id (0x1131).

And for Speedstream it came up with this:
0x94CB (device id), ATI RADEON E2400 (chip description), 0x1002 (vendor id) ATI Technologies Inc. / Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (vendor name).

Googling Realtek PCIe Gigbit ethernet family controller windows 7 driver takes us here:

Realtek

Use the Vista driver.

Once you get online enable hardware auto-updating and keep checking optional Windows Updates for newer drivers: Automatically get recommended drivers and updates for your hardware

If you are unable to install drivers, perhaps you have a friend who can show you how.

If you had Vista before these drivers are all in the windows.old folder under C:Microsoft/System32/Drivers and driverstore if you browse there from device manager. Driver Install - Device Manager
