A friend of mine asked me to re-install his Asus F5Z notebook with Windows XP.
I installed successfully all drivers from Asus driver download site. Everything is working fine but the Ethernet driver. The installation of Lan Driver for Windows XP finishes with strange message "Please shutdown & plug Realtech PCI-e card to complete the installation.
Not sure if it matters but OnChip SATA is in 'Native IDE' mode . The original one with Vista was 'IDE -> AHCI mode'.
Any idea how I can make the LAN adapter to work under Windows XP?
So 'Everest Ultimate' found the NIC under
network adapters The html report even gives details like (see below). On the other hand Windows Device manager displays Ethernet Controller under Other devices with yellow exclamation mark.
