1. I installed the Nvidia driver from update and it is working fine for me.
2. Did you try installing the new mobo driver through device manager? Also you could try installing in compatibility mode for Vista. Info here if needed: Compatibility Mode
3. Vista drivers should work. Again may need compatibility mode.

Please keep us posted.

Hi Wizkid, you need to assign a drive letter to it and then it will fine, by default Windows 7 hides the primary partition on install but it does not effect anything if you assign a drive letter afterward and that's what I had to do with mine also, personally I always select "B" as my drive letter because I find it's always left out for some reason , I mean whats so bad about B, also when you boot back into your other OS it will still be seen as C drive so don't stress.

Changing the name of the drive in seven will also change the name of thedrive in Vista.

But as others have said, assigning a new drive letter to make the Vista partition accessible in Seven wont affect Vista.

The only drivers I installed from the manufacturers sites were sound and graphics, all others came via WU.
