Windows 7: Qn about legacy nForce2 & SATA drivers for NF7-S mobo?

Qn about legacy nForce2 & SATA drivers for NF7-S mobo

Hi, I have an Abit NF7-S mobo (5+ yrs old) that has an nForce2 Ultra 400 + MCP-T chipset. The nvidia site has classified this as legacy, and only has the download for Vista.

Well I usually prefer to install the 'official' drivers, as MS ones seem to be at times problematic from experience. However I went along with installing the ones provided my microsoft update. All components in Device Manager seem to have been installed, and the OS is working without a problem. But the voice within me still prefers the 'official' vendor software. Would the vista one provided by nvidia work on Windows 7. I use to get a nice small app to control audio in the official release, which I am obviously not getting in the MS trimmed version.

I also have a SATA 150 RAID (Silicon Image Sil 3112A SATA PCI Controller) on the NF7-S which has the same issue as above. All working.. but for that voice

Any help appreciated.

Cheers,
Voirin.

Well first off you should be happy that everything is working with that old of a chipset. On most older hardware peole are told to install the vista drivers, mostly in compatibility mode so If I were you I wouldn't listen to that voice and just enjoy using 7 IMO. Fabe

I found this site for my Abit NF7-S ftp://78.46.141.148/mirrors/ftp.abit.com/pub/download/ Tons of drivers for this board.
