    switch from win8 to win7

    My Gateway Laptop died on me so I bought a new Toshiba Satellite C855D-S5105 320 GBHDD with Win 8. I had this bright idea to just slide my 1 TB HDD win 7 in in place of the the 320 GB with win 8. Yeah you guessed it wrong. I have found enough drivers to get 7 up and working except the wireless network adapter. That is a Realtek driver and have it installed on the 855D with Win 7 and according to Toshiba and Realtek that is the right driver.But when I look at device manager on the win8 hdd there is Microsoft Kernel Debug Network adapter with a driver ver 6.2.9200 This driver doesn't show up on Microsoft driver download page or Toshiba's C855D-S5105 download page. Can anybody help here?

    Go to driveragent.com, it is worth the few bucks and not keep spending time searching.........let me know how you make out. I have used it many times when reloading a computer and not being able to find the last driver.

    Also look at their top 30 downloads, you might get lucky and find it there. The program is only 30.00

    This is probably one of the very few times I would recommend a 3rd party driver finding tool like Driver Agent.
    Good luck on the install.
