Okay so I got passed the "Disk Read Error" by just reinstalling XP then Vista. But now, I have no way to get on the internet. Vista only gives me options to connect to Wireless connection, but I have no wireless adapter! It's like vista was set up to not run wired.

I want an ethernet connection, not wireless, to my PC, but it's not giving me any options and my computer is being weird so that when I put in the driver CD that came with my motherboard, it says "Access Denied". Yes, I'm the Admin.

I went into device manager and looked at the networking tab, and it only shows "Atheros Wireless Adapter"...But yet again, I have no wireless adapter!

I have an EPoX 9NAP+ SLi, and I cannot find an ethernet driver to save my life. PLEASE HELP. The more options I have to choose from the better because odds are, one wont work haha. Thank you so much.

First, the EPoX page here ( http://www.epox.com.tw/eng/products_content.php?ps=346 ) shows that your board is not compatible with Vista, nor do they offer Vista downloads for it.

You can try downloading the Vista drivers for the components individually. From the drivers available on this page ( http://www.epox.com.tw/eng/support.php?ps=346&type=2 ) I'd assume that you'd need:
1) The nVidia nForce 4 chipset drivers for Vista from nVidia.com
2) An AMD Athlon™ 64 Cool'n'Quiet Driver for Vista from amd.com
3) A Realtek AC65 audio driver for Vista from realtek.com
4) The nVidia nForce 4 RAID drivers for Vista from nVidia.com
5) The nVidia nTune driver for Vista from nVidia.com
6) Some other Vista device drivers depending upon the setup of your mobo.
