Alright, so I do have windows 8 installed on my main partition. I have created a second partition with he right settings and volume and size. I have installed a versoin of windows 7 (Not actually purchased) and have used something called the DAZ loader to activate windows 7. When I restart my computer and I select windows 7 everything works properly except for one thing. I have no internet connection. I have a ethernet cable plugged from my router to my computer. Now I can't find an internet connection because it says I have no adapters? I cannon run windows update because I have no internet? It makes no sense. I can basically do nothing for my internet and I need a fix. Would someone please help me?

Sincerely, Tristin

You need to load the Windows 7 drivers for your motherboard and your sound, video and LAN adapter.

And how do you do this? Perhaps a written walkthrough or video help? ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Download them from the computer/motherboard manufacturer's web site on the Windows 8 side, which I assume works, and install them on the Windows 7 side.

I am 15 years old haha. What I believe by what you just said I should go to my computer properties and loo at all of my basic things. And download the installers for them and move them into my windows 7 partition and run them from there? Perhaps could I post a picture of my computer properties and you could find what I need to download? Or is that too much work?

No what I said is to go to the website of your computer manufacturer under support and downloads and find the drivers for your make and model.
