The clues here to me are

The 8 bit and old video driver you noted below from 2006.

I know folk are getting irate about this old OS and how we are expected to know how to find and install drivers since that Microsoft "Update Driver" button has never been a good idea if it ever worked and if it worked has resulted in some folk having to start over.

OK, with that out of the way you know to install the OS first (you have that step done) and then we install our motherboard chipset drivers then if we have HD audio we need the MSUAA, and finally audio then video drivers.

None of this is automatic. And all this has some million discussions so I'll keep it short.

Use the drivers that are for your machine.
