    Hey all. Searching MSI's site has proved fruitless for me, but knowing
    me I might just not be looking in the right place.
    I'm running a K7D Master (MS-6501) mainboard and am looking to get
    drivers for Vista for my board, if it's not automatically detected.
    Anyone had any luck or problems with this combination? The rest of my
    system is Vista-ready (if barely), but before I go and try out Vista I
    want to make sure I'm not completely wasting my time...
    Any thoughts you could contribute would be helpful.

    Have you run the MS Windows upgrade advisor? I would imagine that would let
    you know if you need anything else.

  3. Indeed I have. It had no major problems other than an old dialup modem
    that I'm really not using anyway (and have since removed).
    I just finished installing Vista RC2 a few hours ago and have yet to
    find a compatible driver for the on-board AC'97 sound controller. Also,
    it is showing an unknown device that I cannot figure out. So far,
    everything else is working fine, but I really do need the sound (who
    doesn't!). I even tried installing the Windows XP sound driver to no
    avail. It seemed to install fine but then Vista just won't pick it up.
    Not surprising, since Vista doesn't like being forced to use drivers...
    Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions? I really need to be running
    Vista for my job (tech support) and I can't afford to upgrade right
    now. Not even for a sound card. :(

  4. So. It seems the generic Realtek AC'97 drivers worked. Still have the
    unknown device, though I think I know what that is now. Just a few more
    minor bugs to work out (getting the Aero Glass to work since my video
    card drivers seem to be unable to handle it as-is, despite an
    update...) but I'm sure I can figure it out. Thanks for your help.
