Windows 7: support for asus a8n-sli premium?

17 Dec 2009   #11

Win 7 Ultimate x64

Recognized yes, available is another story.

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.
Which begs the question are they something that is motherboard specific or something added on (video, card, sound card, mouse, keyboard, etc)?

Windows 7 Professional 32bit

Motherboard: A8N-SLI Premium
Processor: AMD Athlon 4200 Dual Core
Graphics: ATi Radeon X800RX PCI-Ex
Hard Drive: 500GB SATA II
Sound, Network and everything else onboard
Evening everyone,

It might have sound strange but I have installed Windows 7 Professional 32bit about 5 times now and it is giving more problems then anything else.

It ran fine on first day of install and it picked up everything, just ACPI for ATK0110 was not found but that was installed from Asus support website under Vista driver mode.

On the second day the machine was giving random errors such as "Kernel Power Error" Event ID 41. I first thought it might be a PSU or a graphics driver or sound driver. I updated all but no luck. It just didn't want to stay up. Kept crashing and reebooting. It then came upto the power where it started saying "No OS found. Press DEL+ALT+CTRL to reeboot".

Currently the machine is keep reebooting itself and not even going onto Windows. I tried to run a system startup fix but no luck, the Restore option is not working either (When I ran recovery it said Memory Error at [Some memory location]).

I have run a memtest and it did not find any problems with my memory. I even ran Windows Memory Diagnostic test and it didn't find any errors either.

I am assuming it is to do with nVidia Chipset which is not upto date with WIndows 7. I don't know.

I think best bet is to stick to XP unless someone has found nVidia Chipset driver for this board which works with Windows 7?

Windows 7 Professional 64bit

Sorry to resurrect this rather elderly thread but I will soon be attempting installing Windows 7 64bit Home OEM on a separate drive on my A8N-SLI Premium MB. I have XP running on the first drive.

This thread is dated December 2009 so I hope things may be more 'sorted' now and drivers will be available, I see this seems to be the main cause of problems. I am not running raid setup as basically I did not really understand the raid system so have the two drives connected to the IDE connectors.

IF you have the setup, A8N-SLI Premium with Windows 7 64bit running on it would you please let me know any pitfalls I may come across, I note the mention of "ATK0110 ACPI Utility" as a problem but there seems no further mention of this?

I would like to replace MB and CPU but redundancy means lack of funds

How's your setup now Stormy 13?

Many thanks.

Windows 7 Professional 64bit

I questioned ASUS as to whether this MB and Windows 7 are compatible, below is the reply I received:

I am afraid to say this motherboard does not support Windows 7 formally at present.
The onboard devices may not work normally.
To ensure stable performance, I suggest you use Windows XP or VISTA for a while, but if now you still need install Windows 7, maybe you could use VISTA drivers for a test.
Or you could do as follows to update the drivers to Win7. Right click "computer"->manage->device manager->right click the hardware device for example audio device->update driver software->search for the drivers automatically. Then the system will search for updated driver and then download to install automatically.

I have decided, for the sake of my sanity, to stick with XP until funds allow the purchase of new MB and CPU. I was looking forward to a nice new system to play with. Oh well, saved some money I suppose!!

I would have thought that the Windows 7 upgrade adivsor would have checked motherboard hardware as well as printers, graphics card, modem, sound cards etc.
