Windows 7: Intel G45 drivers broken

Windows 7
Intel G45 drivers broken

Intel G45 WDDM drivers are highly unstable and give consistant BSODs in media center. This includes the drivers that ship with Win7 RC (7100). Any ideas where/when we can get some more stable/better drivers?

Intel G45 on P5Q-em

Im having the same problem, but it seems to be random and mainly around the graphics side.

I have RC 7100 build with windows drivers first then tried chipset drivers from Asus, but havent installed AGP from ASUS yet as they seem older then installed..

Yeah, same issue. I just installed the Vista drivers from Intel's website, oddly enough, my laptop can run higher quality things (game related) with Windows Vista drivers, in Windows 7, then Windows Vista drivers, in Windows Vista! (okay, its vista, so nothings really odd..)

Oh, I only BSOD'd with the Windows 7 versions, when playing videos in WMP12.
