Windows 7: Was Vista-NF3-ATI/AGP-Dual core ever fixed?

Was Vista-NF3-ATI/AGP-Dual core ever fixed?

I've got a Asrock Am2NF3 VSTA board and a HIS Radeon HD 4650 card that I wanted to build a rig around, but I read that Nvidia removed anything mentioning Nf3 support with an ATI AGP card and Dual core CPU right before vista was released. So i'm guessing this was never resolved in Windows 7? I doubt they made a update for such an old chipset.

According to this:

ASRock > Products > AM2NF3-VSTA

Vista x64 has support so 7 should work. With the emphasis on should.

Might want to double check what Asrock actually has parabellum, the only Vista 64 bit driver they have for that board is audio, no chipset or any other drivers. Then again kind of hard for any motherboard manufacturer to have NF3 chipset drivers when Nvidia didn't write any.

So i'm guessing this was never resolved in Windows 7?
Seeing as this is purely a Nvidia issue and that chipset hasn't seen a driver update in 5 years (they dropped support for NF3 about a day after NF4 came out) so there is nothing for anyone else to fix, short of Nvidia coming out with a Windows 7 driver for it and I just don't see that happening.
