Confirm you've completed the steps I've given you first. When there's no reply but only speeches posted back then we don't know what you've done.

One step missing from your list is to immediately after install enable Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3) then run all rounds of Important and Optional Windows Updates, with requested reboots, until there are no more offered when you Check for Updates.
This feature is not available in Windows Vista.

I've also not come across a case yet where drivers cannot be found at all for a device for Windows 7, no matter whether 32- or 64-bit. The problem if it exists is normally with the enabling software for these OEM's, like a fingerprint reader or cam full software but not the driver which given them basic functionality. There are workarounds for these software reinstalls in the brand notes at the end of Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.
I'm having problems with Windows Vista, no longer Windows 7. Windows 7 works perfectly and all drivers are well.
