For me it was simple since the chipset still uses the same driver (From G31 to P35).
All the AMD driver stuff is no longer listed in device manger, at least not showing any.
But I decided to build a newer system (Win 8), with a new SM961 SSD drive (2200 read/1500 write).
I just buy an new boot drive for the old Win 7 system and give it to my nephews.
