    recently installed win7 on my 4 year old pc.. everything is fine.. but i discovered that graphic drivers are not installed... so my fav games like cs 1.6 are running in software mode, opengl is disabled. making the game look crap...
    so i tried installing drivers from driver cd but it reported "os not supported"..
    so searched for latest drivers... but to my shock.. they said "intel stopped support for your motherboard and win 7 drivers won't be released". :( my board is
    intel D865GSA.
    even aero is not working.. . but i dont care about it/ any eye-candy things in win7.. i just want my games(not any heavy 3D games) to look better using my hardware.

    so i tried installing drivers in cd with win xp sp2 compatibility mode, which worked installing but reported error "display driver stopped responding. save your work and restart....." within seconds after starting the pc.. :(

    i can't roll back to win xp, since this pc is not my own and my parents too use it. and my pc can't handle virtual xp mode with my 1 gb ram :|.

    so i decided installing a multi boot win xp with already installed win 7.
    the partitions are already made.. but i dont know how to install win xp in multi boot.

    can someone please help me with this.. or any other solutions to make my graphic drivers work on my win 7 (like any unofficial drivers)
    plzz..need it asap.. i am sick with this crap pc and my parents are not going to upgrade the hardware or buy a new pc. :(
