Hi, First, let me tell you that I did try to research this problem before posting this. I have a HP Pavilion Slimline s5603w, this is probably important. It came factory with W7: 64, and did not include any driver discs. I recently purchased Win XP, and installed it to a separate HDD. My plan is to dual-boot win7 and XP on two different HDDs (if you consider that a dual-boot). This seemed to work until I found out I cannot connect to the internet with xp. I looked on this site for people with similar problems, and I came to the conclusion that I need to install the factory driver for my network adapter. This is because I dont get the network access icon at the bottom, and it wont allow me to set-up a connection; Going into the device manager, there is a network adapter, but I dont think it even works. So taking the advice I found on this site, I attempted to download the driver for this PC from the HP website. They dont even have a driver that supports XP for this POS. The network adapter is fine. Im on the same PC right now, just on my Win7 OS HDD. The connection is great, the hardware is great, my modem is fine, and my router is spiffy. It is obviously a problem with XP. So, assuming my driver is the problem, is it possible i can still connect to the internet if the driver doesnt even support xp? If you think this isnt the problem, or if you have any suggestions for me, please let me know.
