A few people have reported trying the drivers on W7 and met with the same sorts 
of errors. 0x7B is 'boot device not found' and will most likely be because the 
drivers haven't installed properly. You can try booting with /NOGPLPV in the W7 
equivalent of the boot.ini file (I forget how to do that) and see if the 
install completes, but I don't do a W7 build at this time (you are using 
Vista/2008 I assume?) so unless you can build it yourself, you'll have to wait 
until I get around to it :)
