Old mobo + win7, need driver help.

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 :(

  1. Are you using 32-bit or 64-bit Windows 7?
  2. Go to nvidia.com and get the nForce 2 legacy drivers for Vista (32 or 64 bit). These should do the trick to run on Win 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?
