XPS 600 Can you install sata nvidia media shield software on Windows 7 64bit?

I have several XPS 600 machines all running RAID 1 configurations.  Is there a version of nVidia Media Shield software that will run on Widows 7?  Running the BIOS nVidia works just however, I'd like to be able to manage the RAID configuration in Windows and not have to go to the BIOS tools (the BIOS version is very limited).

Found nVidia Windows 7 64 bit Media Shield replacment software here:http://www.nvidia.com/content/DriverDownload-March2009/confirmation.php?url=/Windows/nForce/system_t...

Windows 7 64bit System console here:http://www.nvidia.com/content/DriverDownload-March2009/confirmation.php?url=/Windows/195.62/195.62_d...

The latter link includes Display Driver managment as well.

In addition, downloed the Vista 64 bit Media Shield application from Support.Dell.com XPS 600 driver downloads.  Once the previous installs are done, the nVidia Control Panel, will now contail "+ Storage" option as well as the display controls.  This new control reports on the status of your SATA drives and can manage the RAID configurations including Rebuilds, Migrates, and syncronize.

Tom,

 I've tried you work around but there is no option for "+ Storage" under nVidia Control Panel?  It also appears the Vista 64bit Media Shield application @ Dell is actually 32bit.  I used download R147467.exe and this installed.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance.
