    OK so I have a more or less completely functional Sandy Bridge build running on a Gigabyte P67A-UD4-B3.

    The installation went without any hiccups save one. I am using a Zonet (ralink chipset) wireless PCI adapter for which there do not appear to be any 64 bit drivers. It works perfectly when I use the 32-bit bootloader from multibeast. The trade-off is that in 32 bit mode, sleep doesn't work at all. The flip side, of course, is that with a 64-bit boot, the card isn't detected at all and sleep works perfectly.

    Any ideas on how I can get both? :D

    And mad props to the site for helping me get this up and running with relative ease.

    Thanks for that mod.

    Any suggestions? Is it possible to get a 32-bit driver for a pci card working under 64 bit? Or is it possible to get sleep enabled using Gordo's guide without the 64-bit bootloader?

    bump. Is my question poorly phrased or is what I'm asking impossible? Is there a wireless card people would recommend so I can circumvent this issue?
