Windows The geek world might be all over Windows 7, and the rest of the world might be sticking to Windows XP for now, but there is also this Windows Vista operating system lingering around. Microsoft has just released the final version of the second service pack for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008.

I'd at least think the mobo maker would post drivers on the site though. Since the audio is integrated on the mobo, the responsibility is the mobo maker's to provide the necessary drivers.

None of the mobo makers use SoundMax AD1888 anymore so all the drivers are already outdated and don't have the required signature. Believe me, I spent several hours googling and trying every single driver I could find. Still none of them worked. There's plenty of those for Vista, but as said, they're outdated. It'd be nice if I could somehow make Win7 accept non-signed drivers, but alas, there is no such thing.

That's one thing that I've always disliked about Windows; it tells you what you can and cannot do, not vice versa. I still might use Win7 if I just could get audio working, atleast to have some touch with it if I ever need to repair a Win7 installation.
