I had Windows 7 homepremium. I decided to upgrade to windows 7 Ultimate. After I installed it, I noticed I had NO connections.

In fact, It says "Windows could not detect any networking hardware"

When I troubleshoot it,it say that the network adaptor driver was installed incorrectly or something.

But I can't/Don't know how to install drivers.
The main problem is I can't conect to the internet with that computer.

A: why did this happen?
B: where did it go? it just upgraded.

Please help me, I tried EVERYTHING... I just need some help.

If your network connection is busted, then how the heck are did you post this topic?
It makes no damn sense!

Seriously, if you got another system used that to download the driver(s) for your broken computer.
Copy the driver to a USB flash drive and bring it over.
Then install network driver by following the on screen instructions.

Click on Start
Right click on Computer, select Properties
On the left panel that comes up, click Device Manager

Do you have a section called "Network Adapters" or anything in it? Or anything called "Unknown Devices"? See if you can get the names of any of these unknown devices, if you have them.

There are a couple of theories as to why this happened: installing a 32/64 bit OS when you have the other, or an unlucky surge killing the network adapter (its less likely, but I've seen it happen before. Especially if you leave it plugged in during the upgrade).
