Windows 7: Can't find wireless network drivers for acer aspire ES1421

Can't find wireless network drivers for acer aspire ES1421

Hello, my old laptop went down, so I bought a new one, which is Acer Aspire ES1421. I got it without OS as I have my old Windows 7 from previous laptop, however once I installed them, I can't get my Internet to work. Neither wired, nor wireless. The official website provides only the drivers for Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. I tried them, but they don't work on Windows 7. Is there any place for me to get the ones, which do work on Windows 7? I really don't want to get Windows 8.1 and especially Windows 10, because I really don't like them, and I'd really prefer Windows 7 over them. Even if I'd have to buy another license of Windows 7 for that specific laptop (if for whatever reason I can't share same Windows from my old laptop).

Hello and welcome Gabriel mate two things first the OS is the Windows media a retail or an OEM version? because if it is an OEM you cannot transfer the OS to a new machine after being installed on the original machine. There are times when Microsoft will let you put an OEM on a new board but you have to phone them and explain the circumstances - in your case if it is just a change of machine then probably not.
The version if a retail can but only if it is used on the new machine only.

My other thought is that as the new machine is just that - new it might not support Windows 7 - I bought an Asus ROG gamer and had to update the BIOS to get 7 drivers to work on it because it was made for Windows 8.

When/if you do get it to work and you are installing updates set the updates to let me choose whether to download and install them and watch out for KB3035533 it is the beginning of a lot of upgrade updates.
