Problem with PCI wireless card

I have windows 7 ultimate x64 installed in one partition and I have windows 7 Home Premieum x86 in another partition. when i use my Ultimate x64 i can use the Belkin PCI wireless card. but when I load in the other windows x86, I cannot even see the Belkin PCI card in the device manager.

How do I get the PCI card to be recoginized by the device manager. Thanks

This could be an issue with the drivers, Im sure you will have an X64 driver and a X86 driver for you Belkin PCI device.

I take it that you have installed the relevant drivers on both versions of 7.

7 would still detect the hardware in device manager, check the network adapters, or the other devices with the yellow question mark.

hope this helps.

The thing is, the Pci card doesn't even show up in the device manager under network properties. whereas, i can see both the network adaptors running X64..

Goto device manager and select view, then can you take a screen shot of your device manager in X86 with the network devices and other devices extended.

Did you install two different drivers on both version of 7.

when i boot with my normal windows 7 Ultimate x64, i can see both the devices in the device manager. Both the devices work fine.

But, when i boot with windows 7 Home Premium K ( Korean), i can see only the built in Giabit adapter and it works fine as well. I do also have the 32 bit driver for belkin PCI card.
