1. Probably you need to create a shared folder/drive containing the windows partition in the virtual machine settings for the installation to recognise it.

2. Probably you need to tweak the network properties to be part of the wireless network to access the net. Check documentation that came with connection to get proper values for IP and subnet etc.
