What Intel board are you currently running?

What is your source of info that it won't support Windows 7?

I am using a 3 year old Intel board with Windows 7; no issues.

I would think virtually any Intel PC board in production would support Windows 7.

Any of the above should work, assuming they fit your case.

Ham:

I think you are out of luck, not because of video or any particular driver.

Look here


Desktop Boards - Supported operating systems

You won't see your motherboard under the Windows 7 area.

You WILL see it farther down under the XP and Windows 2000 area.

I would take that to mean you must get a new motherboard.
