None of the drivers for anything but Bluetooth and the chipset drivers I pulled from AMD's website will install. Both the Wireless (Atheros) and LAN (Realtek) bounce saying that no controller was found.
Everything was operational before switching and I even spent an hour on a support chat with a plank that new nothing. After the hour he just said that the OS was not supported. Well, how come the drivers all list Windows 7 as supported?
