Dual Boot:Windows 7 RC(clean install from XP partition) sound card problem; Windows 7 BETA (upgraded frm Vista Bus.) working fine

I am using my old PC for testing Windows 7.  Intel Pentium 4, CPU 1.80mhz, 2GB Ram, NVIDIA FX 5200, 2 hard drives, 2 DVD drives, TV adapter, modem, SCSI card, network card, sound card=SB Live 5.1
My original dual boot: Windows XP PRO + Vista Business (both 32 bit system)
  1.  I upgraded Vista Bus. to Windows 7 BETA, all my devices worked fine, at the time of this upgrade I had to opt for a new Anti_Virus, I installed AVG free and worked fine.
  2.  Did clean install of Windows 7 RC on the hard drive I had Windows XP PRO. Installation went fine, had to install drivers for my ethernet card LNE100TX, for Intel modem,   
       creative sound blaster "SBLive 5.1" did not accept the drivers. I have downloaded the drivers from Creative website, but still nothing. Windows 7 says my sound card is not
       supported, but it works great under Windows 7 BETA!
Could somebody guide me in how to resolve this problem, please? I know I could just go and buy a new sound card, but I  like to explore different options before giving up

Above is link for Windows 7 Forums.

You should ask windows 7 specific questions there.

These are Vista Forums.
