Exclamation Windows 7 fresh install - nothing works

Alright, here's what happened.

Windows 8 consumer preview came out. I installed it. Right overtop of my Windows 7 install (I know, I'm an idiot). Some programs didn't work with Windows 8, so I created a new partition and now I have a fresh install of Windows 7 on my W: drive. The thing is, the W: drive is fresh. So fresh, that there are no network drivers, and there's not much of anything else. How can I install the drivers for everything on that partition? Or at least the network drivers? Because once I have the network adapter driver, I can install everything else, right?

... right?

You will have to download the driver from the manufacturer's site. See How to find what hardware is installed in the computer
