Picture the scene. I have a Samsung N510 netbook which has a Realtek wireless card installed. Absolutely useless card, cannot transfer large files over the network and constant disconnects under Debian.
So I purchase a good quality card made by a well known manufacturer; a 512AN_HMW 5100AGN. Works better under Debian but I want to run XP. Now I have a base installation of XP Pro and whenever I go to install the card drivers (direct download from Intel) it will crash, locks up completely. Hard power off and on again but cannot get into windows. Blank screen instead of the splash screen.
