What driver are talking about in particular? Do you mean intel chispet driver?

Can't open the link, where did you look? On asus website?

It's a known bug that intel chipset installation software doesn't work on seven (Operating System not supported). I still don't understand if a manually forced install is really required.

I still think it has to do with you boot configuration... I see your Windows 7 HARD DRIVE is different from your drive where you BOOT partitions resides. Can you tell us what other OS you have ? Do you dual boot with Vista? I think the pagefile is located on a Vista partition and it's conflicting with Windows 7 seeing that page file instead.

Correct me if I'm wrong... Your current windows partition is C: on DISK0, but the boot partition is on another disk, DISK1????

Yes you are right. I had ubuntu on the 10 gb partion that you can see in the screen, but i formatted when i installed seven.
In fact I don't know why boot partion is in the other disk, but it have always been like this.
I don't know how to fix it without formatting all drives (I can't do that cause I have no space for backup).
Anyway, with Vista and ubuntu this was not a problem, everything worked fine, with dual boot with ubuntu (with grub) or not (only Vista installed).

P.S.: sorry for my terrible english, i hope you can understend as well

Windows cant see Linux partitions so can only report what space/partitions it can see.

Of course. In my case now, the 10 gb partion I used for linux is not a linux partion, i formatted during seven install.

So now you practically boot from GRUB?

if so, try editing GRUB's menu.lst file and do a re-mapping on the drives on Windows 7 entry. Something like:

Title Windows 7
map (hd1) (hd0)
map (hd0) (hd1)
map --hook

Please tell us which BOOT LOADER starts your computer.

Note: Before you do any remapping, if GRUB is your bootloader, post here the contents of menu.lst file.

No I told you, i formatted the linux partion when I installed Windows 7.

Is there a way to restore the normal boot partion? I mean in the C drive as you told me.

I guess I didn't read well...Now you dont' have ubuntu, so you probably not have GRUB either. WHAT operating systems do you have right now?
