Mitch, you have a new install to work on for awhile to see if it solves your sleep problem, troubleshoot the wireless issue, transfer files in, compare to your other one on the dual boot.

There is no hurry to make a decision on which one until you get the new one Setup and running to compare.

You can have either one at any time. You can hide one and there will be no dual boot menu.

You have 30 days to decide to activate.

So don't rush to make any decisions. First see if this new 7 solves your main problem that brought you here.

Getting the wireless up is only a hurdle to get over then.

See you tomorrow.

Do you have a router?

If so, then go into Control Panel and uninstall Big Pond for now.

Go to Device Manager, click Network Adapter, find your Wireless Adapter, click on it, then Driver tab, then Update driver, then Browse, now browse to the old Windows 7 partition (D?) windows/system32/drivers and have it search that folder for your driver.

Once the driver is installed to the Network Adapter, right click network icon in system tray and Troubleshoot.

Go to Network & SHaring Center>Change Adapter Settings, rightclick wireless adapter and try to Connect, then Diagnose.

If no connection still, then put Big Pond CD in, right click on CD Drive, Open CD. Look for .exe file, rightclick choose Properties and on Compatibility tab set it to XP SP2 and Run As Admin., save and then click exe to see if it will install. If not try Vista mode.

Or call tech support to help you. They may have a file on their website for Windows 7.

Post a topic In Network forum here. Explain problem clearly.

This may mean it needs to be installed in Vista compatibility mode. I show above how to try installing Big Pond in compatibility mode.

But first, if you have a router, try uninstalling Big Pond and just installing the driver for network adapter in Device Manager as I show in above post. That driver is waiting in the windows/system32/drivers file on your old Windows7.
