Code 28

  tomtojo 21:08 05 Jan 2007

Tried to install virgin BB on partition, I have used original install disk, but I have got a problem with Ethernet controller, (the drivers for this device are not installed, code 28 ) I had the same prob with my main OS, but a mate sorted it, he said the drivers had been installed to the wrong place, he moved them
and everything was OK.
My mate is away for a while so can't get hold of him
, Can I download drivers to disk, and try to install
on other OS.

The official MS explanation is:
Code 28
The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)
Recommended resolution
To install the drivers for this device, click Update Driver. This starts the Hardware Update Wizard.

I think you will need to go to Device Manage, highlight the LAN hardware and right click on it then chose Update Driver whilst connected to the Internet.

thanks dmsO5
I can't get on the net on my partition, so I can't update drivers.

I don't understand what you mean by 'can't get on the net on my partition'???

Drivers for inbuilt Ethernet are on the Motherboard CD

I have XP installed on PC, I partitioned HD and installed second XP on it, but can't install BB for above reason.

As above do you have a Motherboard CD with Drivers on it? if not check Partition's for drivers or any disc's you got with comp. You are looking for Lan Drivers
