Wish I could help you on the Windows 7 issue.  It is working fine on
my wife's W 7home version to my Ubuntu 11.04.  I just tested my
daughter's W7 and it is seeing my ubuntu machine.   Can you just dual
boot that machine or do you need to have windows?  Could you run W7 in
a virtual machine?  Does not answer your problem.  Maybe there is a
windows forum where someone could help-  really sounds like a W7 issue
not a linux one.
