Make sure BIOS is already up to date as noted 1.10 was required for 64-bit OS support and frankly 1.20 contains an important AHCI update before OS clean install. Hopefully already installed, but 1.20 contains 1.10 so only 1.20 need be applied if update necessary:http://www.asrock.com/mb/NVIDIA/K10N750 ... ad&os=BIOS
indicated the old Vista 64 bit drivers from the ASRock site will likely work with Win7. nVidia nForce System Management is part of the chipset driver package. If you want to get the latest/last driver available or are forced to hunt for a driver for any chip you will need to become a driver detective (see below):

Realtek HD Audio driver (ALC890):http://filehippo.com/download_realtek_h ... o_vista_64
64bits Vista, Windows7, Windows8, Windows 8.1 Driver only (Executable file) R2.75 2014/5/21 122738k
[Note ALC890 not specifically listed, but ALC888, 889 and 892 are so likely this will work as they are usually very modest variations in between numbers.]
Realtek LAN driver (RTL8211B):http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/dow ... wn=false#1

May not work.
Check Device Manager for yellow/red flagged items still without drivers. Note Win7 is pretty good at identifying and selecting drivers from its extensive built in driver library. And when you re-connect to the Internet AFTER
a successful clean install it will search for any drivers it could not find (not so successful or accurate I'm afraid).
The last chance and it is a very good one
is to ID the yellow/red flagged chip the driver is needed for through its maker and part ID using the Hardware ID tag and scour the net for any
PC maker who has the compatible driver for the chip on file. Remember the driver is specific for the chip not the MB so identical (or near identical compatible) chips are found used on many PC parts and their drivers are identical to the one's on the ASRock site (only maybe newer revisions). Pretty easy to do and if a 64-bit Win7 driver is not listed try a 64bit Vista driver (usually work). Worse comes to worse you can try a 64-bit XP driver if available but those rarely work due to some changes between 64bit XP and Vista.
No yellow/red flags in Device Manager
No Problem Devices listed in System Information
under the Component tab?
