Driver Compatibility Issues Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

So I have an old retro PC I built recently (Abit AV8, 4GB DDR, AGP HD 4670) and the drivers for the GPU work fine on Windows XP. But on Windows 7 all hell breaks loose. I got it working for a short period of time before it started going haywire. I think its related to the fact that the 4670 has a converter chip to convert to AGP as my native AGP Radeon 9550 XL installs with no issues whatsoever. I also have a HD 3850 with a similar converter chip and it works flawlessly on Windows XP but on Windows 7 it has the same weird behavior. Below are video links so said behavior.

I couldn't directly upgrade to 7 from XP so I'm wondering if I can go XP -> Vista -> 7 if thats possible?
