Default windows x64 (longhorn) driver probs

I just wanted to know if any of you guys were having problems installing hardware with windows longhorn? I tried installing a tv tuner card that I had and it gave me problems, also tried installing a gamepad and did the same thing... eghhh I think im just going to put regular XP pro again.

P.S. I did try updated drivers and it didnt help at all

Wow, I have had the OG Longhorn for almost 2 years now bud.
Didn't like it... Couldn't find drivers for practically any usb devices.
