Hi all, I have an Abit NF7-S2.
I know it's ancient in computer years but I NEED to get it working.

The built in Lan and sound are the only things not recognized by Windows 7.

I was able to scrounge up all the drivers but of course they don't work with Windows 7.

If I could write my own I would :(

Are you using 32-bit or 64-bit Windows 7?

Win7 Pro 32bit, then run the original drivers in compatibility mode (cannot be done with home version).

Any particular reason why you cannot move the data/programs to a different machine? Or throw the original OS (XP I think) on it?

I never thought about browsing the original mobo install cd and running compatibility mode. That did the trick, thank you :)
