Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Ok so I downloaded the win 7 home premium , I did the activation all good but I still have the same issue .
Now it appears network controller in the device manager the it shows with the yellow icon like the rest of those I early mentioned.
When I click on it says "The drivers for this device are not installed ( code 28 )
I did the system check and all went well this time : " Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations..
I checked the bios aswell and its enabled.
So from what I understand it just needs the driver right?
