I installed it successfully in a half hour, then it tooks about 10 minutes to boot up.
Then only problem is, without any graphic drivers it runs slow and laggy.
I have an Nvidia 8600 GT and i tried to install Windows Vista Drivers, later some XP ones but it doesn't works.
Are there no working drivers for Nvidia Graphic Cards avaible which can run under Win7?
Please help me.

Use the latest Forceware Drivers, they work fine under 6956.

2 methods:

Extract original archive with Winrar, then go into the extracted folder and right click on the Setup file and go to properties and then Compatibility Tab and Select Vista.

Or, extract, and go to Display Properties, Select Video card, and go to Update Driver, and point the updater to the extracted folder.

for the second part go to your device manager, find which one is your graphics card click the plus and right click the driver name that appears hit update and hit search automatically.

OK, here is Nvidia driver for Windows 7 x86 and x64: http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=52b5 ... 3716e2def8

I like Mediafire

Mediafire = free = best

Rapidshare, Megaupload, etc. = pain in the butt

EDIT: done uploading

Just try the installer I provided above, it works. No need to do this device manager stuff.

For updating Drivers via Device Manager:

When you Select Update Drivers, go to browse computer, and select the extracted folder from the first way.

Windows 7 pisses me off, i don't think my system is so old and bad :(

@Day2Die: Don't work cause it's for x64 systems, you only changed the name and let it run in compatiblity modus

It doesn't shows up the Display adapters in the Device Manager

Image

And when i start the setup in the Compatibility Modus of Windows Vista, i get that error:
Image

Here are System-Specs:

Motherboard: ASUSTeK M2A-VM
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT with 1GB
RAM: 2 GB
HDD: Western Digital 80 GB + TrekStor DataStation maxi.mu 750 GB
Mouse: Logitech RX 250
Keyboard: Microsoft Wired Keyboard
OS: Windows XP Service Pack 3/Windows 7 Build 6956 Milestone 3
Monitor: CTX Color Monitor 17'

I tried the GeForce Release 178.24 WHQL Drivers too, but they aren't working too

Your Hardware profile is Corrupt, do a System Repair or Restore (F8 Before Booting into Windows) and see if that works, if it doesn't your Install is Corrupt and needs to be Reinstalled.

And yes it is Corrupt as I took a look at your Device Manager and you're missing quite a few Items...have you installed any other Updates for your Mainboard Chipset, as 7 maybe using Generic Drivers that arn't exactly made for your Board.

OK, here is x86 (32 bit): http://www.megaupload.com/?d=VHU20K7N or http://rapidshare.de/files/41186268/x86.rar.html (build 6801 x86, 6956 x86, etc.)

And here is x64 (64 bit): http://www.megaupload.com/?d=XRSLFR7E or http://rapidshare.de/files/41186269/x64.rar.html (build 6801 x64, 6936 x64, etc.)

EDIT: move link to megaupload because mediafire is confusing 8-)

@SLAYERMAGGOT, you download the wrong one. If you look closer, the original link is a folder which contain both x64 and x86
