conflict in wireless adapters while setting up drivers

I recently built a new computer and had XP 64 bit on it. I installed
everything (mouse, dvd burner, wireless, video card, etc.) successfully on
that OS. I then bought the Vista 64 bit upgrade. I had a successful
upgrade.

I then installed the drivers that came with my mother board (Intel
BOXDX48BT2 LGA 775 Intel X48 ATX), but I think somehow I accidentally
installed a wireless adapter that came with the CD. I think this b/c in the
device manager it has Marvell Libertas 802.11 b/g Wireless LAN Client
Adapter, and on the CD there is a RAID utility by the same brand of Marvell.

Anyway...I try uninstalling that adapter and it vanishes. But when I try to
scan for hardware changes, I can quickly see the wireless adapter I'm trying
to install (Rosewill RNX-G300) appear but then quickly get replaced by the
Marvell adapter. I've tried disabling, uninstalling and restarting, and even
done a System Restore to yesterday but I can't get rid of it.

I've even tried reinstalling the drivers to the Rosewill over it, but the
defaults of the install CD for the card is set for a 32-bit OS. The only way
I was able to installing it when I had XP was through the Device Manager.

Can I roll back to when I first upgraded to Vista with nothing on it? Can I
rerun the upgrade to try and get a fresh OS or will that not work due to
licenses/product key? I just want to get the Marvell adapter off so I can
start all over and get my wireless card driver on.

You're exactly right. I was able to connect to a wireless network, which in
the long run is what I want. The only thing I'm losing out is the Utility
program that came with the CD which manages the wireless networks. Funny how
it supported XP64 bit but not Vista 64 bit. But that's a whole new can of
worms.

Thank you very much for the clarification!
