I've had this machine for a couple years and decided to revamp it a little. After recently partitioning a section of my hard drive and setting up a dual boot system for Vista 32-bit home premium [pre-installed when I bought the machine] and Windows Server 2008 Enterprise 64-bit, I ran into a problem. I can't find the WLAN driver for the 64 bit OS anywhere. The drivers from the m8120n support and drivers page for Vista 64 bit aren't working. I keep getting the following error:
Your system does not meet the minimum requirements for this update. Update has been cancelled (9998).
I've got just about everything working except for this 802.11b/g.

I wish that I could say Windows Update solved the problem for me, but unfortunately that is not the case. All current updates are installed. I've read other threads about running 64 bit operating systems with the m8120n, but those who did weren't concerned that the WLAN driver didn't seem readily available. I'd prefer not to have to buy a new wireless adapter but I'm running out of ideas since it will be vital to the server.
On the 32 bit Vista OS the driver is Ralink. The 64 bit drivers that I download from Ralink's site give me the same errors as the HP site's drivers do. The machine specs say that the WLAN is Lite-On USB Wireless but that doesn't aid me in my search since I can't find Lite-On drivers anywhere.
