When Windows Setup begins, press F6 to install third-party drivers. You will need to have the drivers on a diskette.

I'll get the drivers right now and post the link.

Extract these files onto a diskette. Like I mentioned above, press F6 when the installation begins. Place the diskette in Floppy Drive, and select the drivers (VT8237) for his operating system.

You need a Floppy Drive.

You have to install it first.

If you have trouble using that method, then I could always post the exact drivers after I copy them off the diskette. You need the drivers for the VT8237 South Bridge. He should of had them included.

You can either use that program to create one - Or I can post the drivers (ready to use on a diskette).
