Don't know your board but some bios have memory address issue and a setting to handle this. The windows 7 drivers should be functional with your card only aware of problems with newest 5000 series in W7-64bit. Amd has had several functional versions of Catalyst that should install without issue. I think a new one was due out yesterday but didn't show. Even if the Catalyst install is a problem you can download and install just the driver portions, about 20 megs worth.
Lastly there is no upgrade from XP to Windows 7. You are required to do a fresh install.
