I have the same problem with LAN driver in Vista. I'd reinstalled the computer from included DVD, but after the installation Ethernet Controller and SM Bus were not installed correctly (according to Device Manager). Then I downloaded drivers from support site, even after I'd specified the directory for driver system didn't find any suitable driver. I'd also tried to choose driver manually from the list but none of them worked (Device cannot start - Error 10) and there were too many to check them all. What could be wrong? Or what is the exact LAN type in the PC, so I can choose it manually from the list (in the data sheet I found only info that it is "LAN: 10/100/1000 MBit/s Realtek Phy", but it doesn't match any item from the driver list).
PS: In Linux everything works fine.
