Windows 7: Eliminated admin password in boot, now can't get past blue screen of d

Windows 7 Ultimate 32-Bit & Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit

A wireless router has 4 Ethernet ports on the back of it . That you could plug into while you're installing Windows . The steps you're doing is fine with me I don't see any issues with it . Except for you don't need to boot off the driver cd .

When i say wireless i mean no router or anything, it's just a wireless signal.

Is going with a VPN or just using something like True crypt better for security?

It sounds like you are installing correctly. Are there any drivers missing in Device manager after all rounds of Updates?

If not then how is performance and are there any problems. I usually check the logs, System Resources and assure a Clean Boot to check it over using Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 as I go or once it's setup. Then if all is well capture a Win7 backup image externally so you never have to reinstall again.

Review the steps once more in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 to see if you overlooked anything.

The 6150 wireless adapter is always the one that goes missing , even after all updates are installed. It doesn't seem to be causing any issue though as the computer works fine. Not sure if it's necessary to install it.

This is why it says clearly in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 to have your wireless driver in your backup so if the installer doesn't provide it you can install it to get online quickly to run all of your Windows Updates.

Find the latest driver on the Support Downloads webpage for your model PC here: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download U56E. As there are a number listed under Wireless LAN go by the make of the Wireless Device listed in Device manager, trace it using Hardware Identification, or try each one shown until it installs if you don't know the make and model of the actual device.

Can you post a screen print of Device Manager with the Network adapters expanded to show everything listed in there?
I'm curious as it seems you can connect via wireless, even with the no driver error for "Centrino WiMAX 6150"...
Just wondering if you have 2 wireless Network adapters...
I don't have a Centrino Laptop right now to look at and see what it shows...
