I have put together my first computer build and so far ive got everything to work, without any major issues ive installed windows 7 64-bit and then motherboard drivers and graphics card and havent had any issues using the different features of windows 7. I then decided to get a 300Mbps Wireless Networking PCI Express Adapter from TP-Link to get access to the internet i already have in the house. I inserted the card in one of two approporiate PCI slots on the motherboard (Asus Sabretooth z77) that was next to the graphics card. But when i turned on the computer and windows 7 started up it started a full system reparation (my systems in swedish, "startreparation" in english windows?) for what reason i have no idea as it came up with no solution and all i could do was restart and try again, but to no avail. WTH could i have done wrong? How do i solve this?

It also sounds like you have a PCI-Express card and you're plugging it into a PCI slot? Without me doing a lot of research on your hardware setup - you also might want to confirm the bus types (but I wouldn't think the actual slots would be the same thereby disallowing you from inserting a PCI-Express card into a PCI slot).
so... a couple things:
-Confirm your hardware is compatible with Windows 7.
-Confirm the bus type of your network adapter (perhaps put a full brand/model number out here for us to review?)
-Drink a brew - they must have great brew in Sweden, no?
I did use the express slot, and the packaging also says that it is compatible with windows 7. I also tried booting windows without the card, still same problem appeared. Should i try installing windows again with the card already inserted?
