Default Is D945 Chipset Windows 7 Compatible?

Can I run Windows 7 on a PC with an Intel D945GNT series motherboard?
I'm not using the onboard audio or video chips. If necessary, can I
download the chipset drivers? It has 4 gigs or ram and dual core 3.4
ghz processor. I know it's over three years old, but it is fast enough
for me.

Thanks

Hi!

Can I run Windows 7 on a PC with an Intel D945GNT series motherboard?


Yes you can, and it's likely to run very well. As the 945 chipset predates
Windows 7, you may not require any chipset drivers or INF files for it.

If you were going to spring for an upgrade, you might consider increasing
the amount of RAM on the board. You should have at least 1GB installed.

If you know someone with a Win 7 Upgrade disk, you can install it
without entering the number and without activating it, and it will run
for a month fully functional, so you could see how it worked out. Often,
when you run the Windows Update manually it will offer some optional
hardware drivers.

I sort of forgot about the whole clean install with the upgrade thing.

Intel has drivers all the way down to that POS 810. SOL if you want upgrade
your overclocked Celeron on 440BX.
And Nvidia can't even do Vista drivers for nForce3.
