Hello all! Well, I have here a slightly new problem. I was able to wipe a harddrive clean and installed a fresh OEM copy of Win XP Home SP3. Install went just fine, it loads, everything is perfect...EXCEPT...for some reason it did not install some drivers and I'm not sure if I should just go and download the drivers to a flash drive (from another computer) to install it on the "new" HDD. The tricky part is that the ethernet controller is one of the drivers that was not installed, amongst MANY others.
The system is as follows
Dell Optiplex GX270
BIOS version A07
Intel Celeron 2.20 GHz
256 MB RAM
Fresh install of Windows XP Home SP3 (OEM version)

I can give a total list of the drivers if someone would like to see them. I warn you it is a lengthy list though!
Thanks for any opinions!

Go to the dell website and type in the Service ID tag number and download all the drivers for the system. Your Assumption was correct :thumbsup:
