    Through tears I hope someone will help.

    I have a iMac (3 months old)
    Vista (32-bit) Home Basic

    Trying to use Bootcamp. Everything goes well until I try to connect to the internet in Vista. It says network adapter needs to be installed. Went to Device Manager and under Other Devices quite a few are missing with a Code 28.

    I have installed drivers as advised from the Leopard disc when setting up. This was a disc that I purchased for my Macbook not what is loaded (I presume) on my iMac. Of course didn't get discs with that.

    I am almost pulling my hair out with this so please help.

    Will do that now.

    Sorry to be so specific, but where do I drop the file now.

    The word newbie was penned for me.

    Put it onto a flash drive from within leopard. And then reboot into vista and run the setup program (double-click the .exe file) off the flash drive.

    Handled that OK. But when installing upgrade into Vista I get an error 2727 message. Any help out there?:apple:

    Did a clean install and we are over the 2727 hurdle but still can't connect to the internet. Says network adaptors aren't installed. I connected the modem and computer with ethernet cable and that didn't help either.

    Ideas??

    I am now happily reporting that my iMac is functioning with Windows. I finished up re installing my modem. I'm not sure if it is a true fix but it's all working and thats the main thing.

    Thanks heaps to those who helped me out, hope I can do the same for someone else in the future.

    Cheers
    :D:D:D
