Windows 7: Sandy Bridge - PCI Soundcard not working

Sandy Bridge - PCI Soundcard not working

Has anyone else had problems with soundcards in the PCI slot of the new sandy bridge MB's?

The drivers can't find the card in either win7x64 or even winxp.

In device manager the card shows up with a creative driver, but when I try to install the correct drivers they can't locate the card.

There is no inf driver only an exe version for this card.

This is actually not the first time I've seen someone having a somewhat similar issue. To my knowledge that individual never found a answer to, and I can not now locate that thread (it was on another forum)
My understanding is many people are expecting bios update releases for these boards very soon.
