    Windows 7 FAX Drivers

    Have any of you gotten Windows 7 to recognize your fax modem? The driver provided on the System 76 site fails to install.

    Did you have any luck with getting the fax modem recognized in Windows 7? The driver on the System 76 site fails to install.

    This has been resolved.

    For anyone subsequently installing Windows 7 (dual boot of course), you need to make sure to install the chipset driver first. Everything else works pretty will work pretty well after that. (Thanks thomasaaron for that tip.)

    As an aside, I wanted to avoid wrestling with grub and partitioning, so I installed Ubuntu via WUBI in Windows 7. So far, it's working very well, and since it's all NTFS, it's easier to access user data from either OS.
