I bought a refurbished HP 6200 SFF computer in order to revive my old Nikon LS8000-ED film scanner that requires FireWire. I also bought a FireWire card and installed it in the computer. After spending many days trying to get the FireWire working with several iterations of drivers and Windows 10 adjustments, I bought Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.
I have now loaded Windows 7 several times, with varying sources of .iso file, and I have no network or FireWire capability. In fact, device manager shows listed under "Other Devices": a) Ethernet Controller; PCI Serial Port; c) PCI Simple Communications Controller; d) SM Bus Controller. Each of these devices also shows a yellow triangle symbol with the exclamation mark in it and no driver for it.
So what should I try next? I've been ALL over the internet looking for clues but most sites want to sell me something I do not need.
Thanks in advance...
