XP mode is intended for Applications that will not run either natively on Windows 7 or in Compatibility mode.

I'm not entirely certain to be honest. I do recall XP Mode (integration features enabled) having the ability to use any plugged in USB Drives. I'll download it and take a look.

As for normal hardware such as this Netgear WiFi adapter (PCI) I have, no.

Alright.. lets see..

I suggest reinstalling all those files. Start with the first one, then the second one, then the third one. If any give problems, restart and try that particular one again.

If you still have problems let me know.

The first one requires validation, then you need to rerun that step.
