Windows 7 Beta drivers for 790X / Radeon HD4670 Platform

Hi all.

Just wanted to ask if someone could help me make my Windows 7 Beta platform a bit more stable via chipset drivers etc? I have a lot of problems with the computer BSOD'ing, freezing, and everything from memory management, irq less or equal, ntfs.sys, fltmgr.sys etc makes my system go bananas. πŸ˜‰

I have installed the 8.12 preview package for Radeon cards and Windows 7 Beta, but I'm unsure what CPU/chipset drivers I should use for best performance?

 

My rig is:

MSI K9A2 CF-F BIOS 1.7 With AMD790X / SB600

AMD Athlon64 X2 CPU

Corsair PC6400DHX XMS2 RAM

AMD/ATI Radeon based ABIT Radeon HD4670 512Mb

SBLive Digital 5.1 PCI Soundcard

PSU Corsair 600W (650?) πŸ˜‰ Don't quite remember, but it's the one on top of the 550W.

 

I'd like to mention that my system is steady as a rock when running both XP and Vista 32bit. Have never had a bluescreen in Vista, during the whole time I've used it, so it's a little strange that the Win7b is so unstable on my rig. (Well, not really, actuallly...lol..)

Hope anyone can help me, pointing me in the right direction. πŸ˜‰

And thanks to AMD/ATI for joining, it's surely my dreamteam!

 

Best regards from

Ah, Windows 7! This will be a very tasty pie when it's done. But now it's just a beta version, even not last one (I mean "Build 7022"). I suggest you to test your rig in the 32-bit version of Windows 7 beta. You see, the 32-bit versions of Windows still have more software support from the hardware vendors rather than 64-bit ones, at least I think so. Or try find the root of your problem amongst other Windows 7 beta 64-bit users somewhere else.

Hello.

Thanks, I just want to say that I tried the 32bit version, but didn't find the problem. So I installed it over again, and this time it looks stable. Strange, but that's probably why they call it beta? πŸ˜‰ Wow, a huge increase in cpu/gpu performance in the windows hardware perf.index! I like it already! ;-D

Best regards

I prefer to wait the official version. I don't undersetimate beta version but I often heard that most beta version is unstable. Don't want to take the risk, especially for operation system.

You, guys and girls, just try to google something like that "Download Windows 7 beta" or (even better) try to search it in BitTorrent trackers.
