Oh, those nVidia drivers...

1 post in this topic

I'm currently evaluating Windows Server 2008. I like the new server functions, and would like to take a look at the Aero interface.

My Asus A7N8X motherboard has an nVidia nForce2 400 chipset. This is now classed as "legacy" on the nVidia site and no Vista (hence Server 2008) drivers are available for it.

Fiddled around with later build drivers (failed to install entirely) and older drivers for XP (sound and USB working, video controller not).

Thus I seem stuck with the built-in MS graphics drivers, as my ATI card driver (which is available for Vista) won't install before the chipset video controller is recognised.

Anyone found a workaround for the nVidia chipset issue, or am I consigned to legacy land until I buy a new MB?
