D610 and Windows 7

I have a Dell D610, which is a fairly modern business grade laptop. It needed a fresh OS install (it still had WinXP Home from the person I bought the lower part of the machine from). Since I had a beta copy of Win7 that I hadn’t tried yet, I opted to install that.

Turns out, the video chipset in the D610 (Intel 915) will never be supported by the Windows 7 driver architecture. So much for trying out windows 7, on that machine anyway.
