SoundMAX worked fine on 7000, 7022 and 7048. What was the problem you were having?

That is not true. I installed all of my drivers on Windows 7 7048 without running in compatibility mode or run as admin. The intel chipset drivers worked just fine installing as is on 7048.

The drivers for Windows 7 will be the same as the drivers for windows vista. It will be like the 2000/XP transition -- drivers are the same for both.

You should read up on WOW64. It's not emulation. The 32-bit code is passed to the (native) 32-bit processor at machine speed.

The slowness is probably related to either changes in the architecture that the apps do not take into consideration, or any kind of lingering debug or test code.

The hard drive ratings in Win7 have been reporting abnormally slow for a while. I haven't read up on why this is, or if the benches are accurate.

The drivers wouldn't install. Saying that, I don't think I've checked for an updated driver for a month or two.

EDIT: Just checked and Asus aren't listing an updated driver. I'll find out what chip it is and see if I can get drivers elsewhere.

Since my 3:rd WD isnīt showing at all in computer why is that?
I need that disk or else W7 is useless for me, so all good i heard about W7 is now like not there for me .
I have photos and other inportant stuff on is as well besides drivers and so why canīt it be displayed?
Itīs there during installation, all disks show in device manager but not in "computer"

help me please so i can enjoy Windows 7

Open up disk manager and initialize the disk that way. Are you installing build 7048 or build 7000?
