Windows 7: Installing 7 thru Parallels on Imac

Installing 7 thru Parallels on Imac

Last night I installed Windows 7 on a Imac using Parallels software. I did a clean install upgrade. I installed XP first, then 7.

My problem at this time is 7 does not recognize the internet connection and sound card. There was no problem with internet and sound after I installed XP, it actually connected to the internet for updates. But 7 will not recognize my broadband and sound card.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Tim

Hi Tim and welcome to sevenforums

You're going to need different drivers for win 7 than for XP. what nic/wifi card are you using? 32bit or 64?
