I wanted to on install Ubuntu on my laptop on a clean harddisk. No backup Partitions or else.
But I found out that not even a single device has been installed. No USB controller, no network. I thought 'ok, then I just install Windows 7 besides' to use it for downloading my ubuntu driver stuff.
Now the strange thing is that the Windows 7 OS has exact the same problem: No internet, no PCi controllers drivers, no generic drivers have automatically been installed. Manual reinstalling of any driver fails in Ubuntu and Windows.
It seems like two fresh systems that are totally unable to communicate with my hardware.
Does anyone have an idea what could have caused this?
