support for asus a8n-sli premium?

does anyone know if there is any official windows 7 support for the asus a8n-sli premium motherboard?

i have looked on the asus support website and it doesn't list windows 7 as one of the available operating systems do download drivers for.

Welcome to seven foruma Matt26: As of now you can use the Vista drivers in compatibility mode Compatibility Mode It's a Nforce 4 board, Which Nvidia hasn't provided windows seven drivers for yet and may not ever Fabe

that's what i thought- i'm planning on playing mainstream games on this computer, so i think it would be best to stick with xp or even vista for the hardware support, correct?

Matt if it helps any I have the little brother of your motherboard (A8N SLI SE, in a second computer) and installed Win 7 x64 on it not too long ago and it is working just fine with the default Windows drivers. Not running RAID on it so no idea if 7 has a driver for that, but Win 7 had drivers for everything else.

I'll second this. Installed Windows 7 on one of those boards on Friday and everything worked straight out of the box all bar one component and an online drivers search sorted that out instantly.

that's interesting... i have a number of devices that are not recognized in device manager, and i cannot connect to the Internet to download and install windows updates because the network controller i'm using (marvell yukon) is recognizing my home network as an unidentified network.

any ideas on how i might be able to resolve this networking issue?

well i've got Internet access now... i tried using the nforce network controller on my motherboard and i was able to get all of the available windows updates.

i still have a couple of items that are not recognized in device manager- i tried doing a search for the drivers via the windows 7 setup disc and online but nothing was available.

in my case, i'm using the 64 bit version of windows 7 ultimate- would this have any bearing on the issues i'm having with finding drivers for all of my hardware?

they show up as unidentified items.

i removed the 64-bit version and installed the 32-bit version and now everything is recognized properly, so i'm guessing there aren't any 64-bit drivers available for whatever items weren't being recognized properly in the 64-bit version.

one interesting thing i noticed- in the 32-bit version all 4 GB of RAM are recognized- i thought that 32-bit OSs had a limitation of only being able to see around 3 GB at the most?
