    Default ga-x48-dq6 Windows 7 Drivers

    Hey all, i was wondering if any 1 got a driver pack for audio/lan/chipset etc.. for windows 7 for my board.
    i've been wanting to test win 7 for a while but avoided it cause of no proper drivers seen on gigabytes site.

    any 1 had any experience with it or can suggest something ?
    thanks in advance :)

    cheers!.

    Check this site for direct links to drivers:

    You need the Intel INF, Realtek sound, I think the Realtek LAN and the JMicron driver (I think the one w/ eSata) which also should work for Win 7.

    Vista Drivers should work fine for you. With Windows 7 X64 Build 7232 It pretty much detected everything straight away and I didnt really need to install anything. Make sure you go 64bit when you go to windows 7

    As far as im concerend the talk and worry about if programs will work on 64bit is FUD. Ive tried every program I can think of and Ive not run into one problem. Stuff thats not Spacific 64bit gets installed into the Program Files (X84) folder and the 64bit stuff goes in the Program Files folder and this is all automajic when you install something. I think its just some BS made up by loosers that for some unknown reason dont want the world to move forward. Im running games that say windows 95 on the box fine in Windows 7 X64. I have not even once needed to use compatability mode for anything at all. Its just bloody brilliant I say. And im not easily impressed. As for the Drivers, WHen the Beta came out the Vista Drivers were all that were availiable, and Ive not found one thing that doenst work better on 7 then Any other OS. Its basically just vista with SP3 lol. Stop wasting time and just do it. Or wait till retail comes out which isnt soon because I dont think MS will let you upgrade from RC to Retail. :-(

    Are you sure the Vista driver doesn't work? From a driver standpoint Vista and Win 7 are very similar, like 2000 and XP back in the day who also shared drivers most of the time.
