This is the second outlet I went to in order to try and solve my issue, hopefully I can get this thing handled soon.
Over a month ago, a Windows Update caused the boot sectors in my boot drive to become corrupt. I tried anything I could without wiping the drive, but I was stuck in a "System Repair" loop upon starting up my computer and I was forced to wipe my drive and start over. As a result of this, my computer seems to be unable to recognize anything in my system right now and it can't even connect to the Internet due to a lack of network adapter. I downloaded LAN and Firmware drivers from ASRock's website for my motherboard, but this is the error I see each time I try and install a driver from my flash drive:
"Cannot install drivers. No Intel® Adapters are present in this computer."
I have an Ethernet cord connected to the PC, but as I said, there is no driver present to recognize said connection. I'm using Windows 7 Professional and my motherboard is an ASRock z77 Extreme4. When inside the "System Information" after typing "msinfo32" into the Start Bar, I get this info from the Problem Devices tab:
Ethernet Controller - PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_16B1&SUBSYS_96B11849&REV_10\4&2B8260C3&0&00E4
Network Controller - PCI\VEN_168C&DEV_002D&SUBSYS_0300168C&REV_01\5&6CAA52&0&0800E5
Not Available - ACPI\INT33A0\0
PCI Simple Communications Controller - PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1E3A&SUBSYS_1E3A1849&REV_04\3&11583659&0&B0

Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller - PCI\VEN_1B21&DEV_1042&SUBSYS_10421849&REV_00\4&37A73C8A&0&00E7
Video Controller - PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_0162&SUBSYS_01621849&REV_09\3&11583659&0&10
All of which are followed by "The drivers for this device are not installed."
I'm hoping this information helps you. I just need to get my computer connected to the Internet, and I'll feel much better.
Thank you to anyone who can help me. I need it.
P.S. - I had to Google most of this info to get to the point I'm at right now, so please, when providing the solution, I ask that you be as specific as possible. I hate to make the process tedious, I just don't want to misunderstand a direction or mess something up. I will be monitoring this thread as closely as I can to provide feedback.
