I bought a new computer - the Packard Bell IMedia B2217. It had vista on it, so i decided to install xp, so i did. I need the drivers for my network card, I don't know which one it is! All i know is that I have a nvidia geforce/nvidia nforce 610i. I really need your help. Please I'm desperate
I didn't even know that there was still a Packard Bell.
You might be able to find out the actual motherboard from the init string. "wims bios" page should be able to help with that. Then you could see if there were drivers for that motherboard's onboard NIC.
I think it would be much easier to just install a PCI one. Cheap and xp likely already has drivers.
I bought this computer, too, and I'd like to install my copy of Windows XP Pro on it - but I have a problem. I insert the disk, and it gets past the stage of loading all the default drivers, such as SATA or Raid drivers, and then just as it gets to the "Setup is starting Windows" step- it gets a bluescreen error. Any ideas?
