I recently installed a new Windows 7 version onto my X230 (via an USB stick) but Windows is unable to connect to a network. The laptop's hardware is fine, as I have a second partition with Linux which has no problems at all finding and connecting to my home network and to the internet.
My two guesses are:
1) I need to install additional drivers from Lenovo for the X230's network hardware. If so, where can I find information about the installed hardware?
2) The Windows file I used for installation was not the right one. Unfortunatelly Windows stopped support for Windows 7, so I wouldn't find out. But I could buy a DVD from ebay to give it another try. As the X230 has no DVD drive I would have to plug in my external DVD drive. Is the X230 able to boot from an external DVD drive?
Thanks a lot for any help!
