Col, or, Jacky

I don't expect you to duplicate the research I have already done. But, maybe, you know already as a matter of course with your expertise, like, looking over your shoulder...

Mine is a A8N32-SLI Deluxe MB, Socket 939, AMD 64 -- NVidia, RealTek, Marvell, etc -- for which W7 comes up empty for drivers.

The MB and CPu are not that old, or, so I would like to think. Am I looking at $400-500 for hardware replacement? This is what my people are telling me.

Realizing, belatedly, you have me now where you want me.

I have to ask

I had been running and playing with the Vista betas, 32 and 64, couple of years ago on this machine, and had run the compatibility test at that time. The hardware checked out fine.

Didn't bother this time. Wasn't thinking about drivers.

The compatability

by Jacky Howe In reply to Vanity

test would have suggested drivers for you. It did for me with Vista so I would take it that W7 is the same.

I'm striking out

by santeewelding In reply to The compatability

Spent the last half hour or so on the Asus site. Like last time, when I specify Socket 939 and A8N32-SLI Deluxe, the list of operating systems goes no higher than Vista 64. When I try that, I get a list, but no clear way to select and download. There is an auto-selection, as opposed to general download, but the button isn't working (allowed in NoScript). On the "general" pane, I can expand with ( - ) and ( + ) to inspect the contents (including the manual in Chinese), but I find no way, first, to select, and, second, to download.

**** being inept.

You should be able to click on Global (DLM)

by Jacky Howe In reply to I'm striking out

There doesn't appear to be too many drivers for either 32 or 64 bit. The compatibility test that I ran on Vista suggested to use XP drivers.

Following the link that PT posted, then running a search for A8N32-SLI Deluxe and selecting the Operating System.

The view that I have with IE when I click on the + lists 3 download sites:

The "+" symbol represents folder with files attached inside. Clicking the "+" symbol will expand the folder or "-" symbol to hide it. You can find the latest driver or utility needed based on your operating system.

I am bloodied, but unbowed.

Still working on this. Reinstalling XP Pro on the other machine now (wiped Linux). When I get it up and online, first thing will be to run a compatibility check -- paying strict attention to any mention of drivers.

And counting on my fingers told me they probably would be up and about on the other side of the world at the time I posted.

Did you have a look at Asus's website?, If not then look here..

by Peconet Tietokoneet In reply to Col, or, Jacky

Select your motherboard make and processor and then do a search. Easy peasy. :)
Download ALL of the drivers and then burn to a cd. Load on the Windows 7 disk and then load on the Raid drivers (if you have sata hdd's).
I hope this will be of use to you.
