    Took a quick peek at the athw8x.sys logs and it appears that you are trying to install an Aetheros wireless adapter driver (and it failed). Is this a PCI add-on wireless card that you are trying to use on a desktop?

    Everything is installed and the system has been working for weeks now. All devices are happy in device manager and all drivers seem to be up to date! Yes the motherboard has Atheros Wi-Fi on it and it is working!
