No, you should not have to upgrade for this issue. You need to go to the network and sharing center, on both computers, and change advanced sharing settings. AND in essence you have to share something before you can see it on other machines.
If you have Norton you need to make major changes to accomplish this connection. Consider turning it off until you get a connection...Then turn on and change permission settings until you can connect again...

PXE-MOF check cable

PXE is network boot. Go into BIOS and make sure it is detecting your hard drive. If it doesn't then the drive is potentially bad and will need to be replaced.

Click "Start," then "Control Panel," then "System and Security" and then "Device Manager."

Double-click the driver you want to repair.

The Properties window opens.

Click the "Driver" tab.

Click "Update Driver" and follow the prompts.

Windows 7 will automatically locate and install the driver update.

You may be asked for your administrator password.

Restart your computer when the driver has been updated.

hope this helps

Hard disk problem

If you are getting read errors after running a "chkdsk" and a "scandisk" replace the drive. Drives are much cheaper than lost data.
