    Have the above motherboard, I know old now but still running great and all I currently need.

    I am currently running Vista 64bit and XP 64bit in dual boot setup along with Linux.

    I am thinking about getting rid of Vista and replacing it with Win 7 64bit. The main concern I have is drivers, do the Vista 64 bit drivers work with Win 7?

    Anyone running this board with any suggestions?

    I've been running Win 7 x64 on a A8N-SLI Premium since early in the beta's and all has been fine.
    Early on there were Vista x64 drivers that worked but now it's mostly all Win 7 x64 ones.

    An install of Windows 7 on an A8n32SLI-deluxe board totally works no need for any drivers from Vista or elsewhere - except you may like to install video\sound driver - optional. As these boards are about the same time cannot see problems.

    Also I think there is a modified BIOS in BIOS mods section that will enable simple activation but a loader should work.

    Thanks for the comments. Installed ultimate 64 bit and it works great, much better than Vista 64.

    There was a modded bios here already with Dell slic in it, but I downloaded the bios from Asus and modded it with Asus slic.
