KVM is a virtualisation package for running operating systems such as Windows on Linux. Windows XP works fine in this, but Windows 7 fails to recognise the sound card. According to the documentation, the soundcard is a Ensoniq AudioPCI ES1370. Does anyone know where I can find a driver for this, or a compatible driver that will run under 7.

I've not tried this in Vista as yet.

Simply try using VirtualBox, or VMWare Player / Workstation. (Player is totally free and can create images/configs also.) – Shiki May 31 '10 at 15:23

I have filed the same bug in ubuntu:

Short answer: windows7 has no builtin driver for es1370.

Not exactly true since the driver is autodetected and working in Windows 7 32-bit. I believe there is no 64-bit driver for this sound card as even on the creative site there is no driver for xp / vista in 64bit.
