nForce Networking Controller not working on Windows 7 RC x64
My system configuration:
Mobo: ASUS M4N78 Pro
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GTS 250
OS: Windows 7 RC - 64bit

My networking adapter (nForce Networking Controller) comes with a exclamation mark. Driver update v15.45 also doesn't work. Tried reinstalling in various ways but no good. Am unable to get internet cable detected. :(

Tried downloading drivers from NVIDIA:
[url="http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_win7_64bit_15.35.html"]http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_win7_64bit_15.35.html[/url]
Windows 7 64-bit Driver Versions:

* [b]Ethernet Driver (v73.06) WHQL[/b]
* Network Management Tools (v73.05) "Sedona"
* SATAIDE Driver (v11.1.0.23) WHQL
* SATARAID Driver (v11.1.0.23) WHQL
* RAIDTOOL Application (v11.1.0.23)
* SMU Driver (v1.67) WHQL
* Installer (v7.01)

[b]But the installer somehow wants to install only SMU and Audio Drivers (No Ethernet drivers)[/b]

Is there any fix/updates from NVIDIA?
Does the latest Windows 7 x64 release have this issue fixed?

Thanks in Advance......

Uninstall the nforce drivers.
Shut down the PC. Ensure the motherboard is out of power (either unplug the pc or turn off the PSU from its switch and wait till all leds on the motherboard -if it has LEDs- turn dark.
Turn the PC on again. The LAN light should eventually light up by the time you get into Windows. Install the nforce drivers then. Problem should be solved.

As for the other questions.
No. It's a problem since the first public beta but no one in Nvidia saw fit to actually fix it.
Windows 7 final also have this issue. However, Windows 7 have another issue with nforce network adapters, too, which, of course, nvidia hasn't solved -> [url="http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=100637"]http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=100637[/url]
