thank you very much. Now 2 questions

How would I go about finding windows 7 compatible drivers?

HOW DID YOU find those drivers. I spent 2 hours on the DFI site and google and failed miserably.

I found a VERY similar motherboard but not the same one.

again thanks for finding the link!


Doubt Windows 7 Drivers are even available for that board. Go to the MS website and download the Windows 7 Upgrade advisor software to see if you can even run 7 on it first.

As far as finding the page. Simple search by plugging in the correct info. :lol:

Seems to be 98, Me, XP only.

You could try installing Windows 7 and see what happens. XP is probably your best bet for performance though.

Likely 7 will just use generic drivers for the hardware.

We're good that way. :P

I doubt you'll find anything past XP for that board, BUT if you can find Vista drivers, they should work. Ideally, Win 7 will find the correct drivers for you when you install. If not, you're pretty much SOL.
