I have a nearly identical need, though I do not know my motherboard designator. Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor says upgrade from my Vista Ultimate on a Gateway DX441X desktop is all OK except for one incompatibility: my Intel Management Engine Interface is not compatible with Windows 7. My IMEI driver version is 18.104.22.1680 dated 3/13/2007 and is built by WinDDK. My system is just over a year old and is a home system, not an enterprise system. What would happen if I installed Windows 7 on my system? Would I lose any functionality with any devices? I have spent about 2 hours searching the Intel website for info on this but come up with nothing that helps.
