the absolute easiest thing to do here, use a wireless router. maybe it is a little more expensive than the dongle, however, it will work far more easily than any other solution and have all of the options of your wired router. you could even hide the wired router behind the wireless router for bette...

imho, purchase a USB add-on card and replace the keyboard and mouse. they do make PS2 add-in cards in the PCI version and the EISA version for the old crop dusters still in use. i have said EISA PS2 card in my windows 3.1, 386dx PC. it allows me to hook it up to my PS2 KVM switch.
just a though ^^

you can do the second repair option like in XP.
you might also try this, just change the ide controller to general under device manager. then install all of the new drivers as needed.
it just might surprise you.
