    Win 7 is working perfectly in my D945GCNL with no problems yet,Although Intel has dropped support for Win7 for my M/B,But u need the latest Bios,otherwise u may face BSOD and other.

    Intel chipset 945G and above (up to G45) are fully compatible with Windows 7 Aero. Below Chipset 945, you need external graphic card or live without Aero.

    If you want to use Windows 7 with Aero turned on you basically need onboard graphics with at least 128mb. Without this its not going to happen. :D :D
