Re: Windows 7 Install on Inspiron 9300--Drivers?

I had attempted the upgrade to Win 7 from Win XP on my Dell Inspirion 9300 through a clean install since all the guidance I had read suggested that a straight upgrade from the XP OS to the Win 7 OS was not possible. Everything looked like it went OK until I discovered my network adapter was a no go in the Win 7 OS. For whatever reason, I was not able to connect to my network or the internet AT ALL after the upgrade. I messed with it for hours trying to get it to work, but never found anything that worked. Fortunately, I had backed up my HD and recoved the XP OS, so that's what I'm back to now on my 9300. I'd really like to upgrade it to Win 7 to take full advantage of Home Group, becuase as it stands, my Win 7 computers can tap into my XP system fine but the XP computer can't even see my two Win 7 systems on teh same network.

Any ideas or suggestions to make this happen will be greatly appreciated!
