Hi Experts,

I have a new HP Z220 SFF Workstation.

I have done a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

On completion of setup, Windows says:

Ethernet Controller:  No driver found.

On the HP drivers page,  there are 3 variants of the HP Z220 SFF Workstation.  I don't think it matters which one I choose.

The only LAN driver offered is for an Intel LAN adapter.

When I run the Intel LAN driver setup I get this error message:

Cannot install drivers. No Intel Adapters are present in this computer

I have booted a Ubuntu Live CD and the network works, so I don't think there is a problem with the LAN adapter.
