1) I'm suprised that provided driver does not work under Windows 7. Though I never istalled Win7 on this motherboard, the kernel of Win7 and Win2008 is the same, so using driver from Win2008 should deffinitely work. Could you attach the Windows message (or screenshot) which says that there is a problem?
2) I don't know if it is possible to read such messages. You can search within Intel Utilities to find such feature.
If you want to check if ECC protection is enabled, download AIDA64, run it, go to Motherboard -> Chipset -> North bridge, scroll down to bottom and search for "Error correction". Also under SPD you can validate if your memory supports ECC.
