Dual boot Win7 Home Premium and Vista Home Premium SP2

I have exactly the same video card on my WORK PC. Runs Aero fine in the Vista Ultimate O/S.

A cpl weeks ago I repartitioned my HDD, and on the new E Drive, installed RC Windows 7.

When I first booted in to Windows 7, no Aero. Windows Update then automatically set off to see if there were any Updates available and downloaded driver WDDM NVIDIA (a 32MB download), set a restore point, installed, I rebooted and now no problem with Aero, all good.

I have not had a BSOD on this PC or my home PC which is running RC W7 also, but with a different graphic card...

Try doing a search for available updates thru Windows Update...that's my suggestion anyway.

Good luck

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

I had FX5200, worked flawlessly

Here the link to nVidia with the driver you need: ForceWare Release 95

It's for Vista, but you can use that one. Just in case, you might want to run the setup in compatibility mode for Vista.

Driver sets that worked for me with a Geforce FX 5900 & Win7 Ultimate were 158.18 & 163.11. Newer sets did not work, but I didn't test them all. Omega's Vista drivers (169.09/25) did not work. Only simple mods to add dev id are required in two files:

%NVIDIA_NV35.DEV_0332.1%  = nv_NV3x,      PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0332   ;5900XT

; Localizable Strings
NVIDIA_NV35.DEV_0332.1  = "NVIDIA GeForce FX 5900XT"

// 0332 - NVIDIA GeForce FX 5900XT
The results:

I also installed ntune Hope this is of use.

These may be the same mods that Mobility Modder made, which made things work on my system.
