I hate to say this but I solved the same problem with a "workaround." If you're not using your only PCI slot, buy (or rummage out of an old computer) a PCI soundcard (soundblaster or whatever) and stick it in. I spent HOURS with the ASUS downloads -=FAIL=-, searching the web -=FAIL=-, trying the ASUS knowledge base -=FAIL=-.
Finally I sucked it up and ripped a soundblaster card out of an old DELL PC and by the time Windows XP booted up and I could get into device manager I had sound.
I'm pissed that I couldn't get the factory system working- but pragmatically- I needed sound and now I have sound so -=SUCCESS=-
If you are using your PCI slot for another device then this may not work for you. I'd be willing to bet you can get an OEM PCI soundcard for peanuts on newegg.com or ebay or your local computer shop if you just need an old or used one. Good luck!

i got digi 001 running on windows 7...
i left my xp on hard disk while installing win 7. it kept xp on folder windows.old folder. in control panel i saw digi as multimedia adapter wich system couldn't recognice. hit "change settings" -> driver -> update driver
used my old windows to search for driver. it found "Dalvin.sys" driver for adapter. installed that. after that windows recogniced digi 001.
downloaded "digidesign asio 6.11" driver installer for win-xp and ran it.
and bingo - it works!
in every step windows was complaining and asking do i want to do this. just yeah'd everything. as i just had a clean install of win 7 i just thought whatta heck i can install everything again if it would not work, but it did.
so in a nut shell:
1: install Dalvin.sys in control panel for digi 001
2: run digidesign asio 6.11 driver installer for win-xp
for me it worked but i absolutely take no responsibility if you mess your system with this! at least reaper got a sound out of it. i haven't tried to record anything yet. but asio settings seemed to work as they used to do in xp.
go to control panel, device drivers and check audio devices and see if you are showing any problems there you may want to download or redownload the drivers for you sound card even if there are no errors because it may have missed a file during the install
Mr. A M D K,
If you start installing, especially your video driver, it will immediately tell you if it does not support your hardware.
However, you can also locate a readme.txt file if you extract the files and this file usually lists out the compatible motherboard model numbers.
One method you can use if you have another computer is you can take the hard drive out of the machine, and connect it to an external enclosure, Ive seen them as cheap as $10. After it is connected to another machine, you can download the driver file that is being reported as corrupt or missing to that computer, extract the file and copy it back to that location on the laptop's drive. This may be a little bit difficult if driver files like ntoskrnl or ntldr go missing, you have technically had your bootstrap loader go bad. There is the possibility that you can copy those files from any other machine running the same version of windows to replace the corrupt files. The only problem with this is that this can occasionally cause more problems than it can fix, because during the installation process these files get embedded with the information about the computer it was installed on, which can panic the registry or driver lists.
you need to put the sata drivers onto a floppy disk and when it asks during the xp setup do you want to install any 3rd party drivers say yes and load the drivers from the floppy. The sata drivers with the floppy generator should be on the drivers cd you recieved.
Re your queries: 1. "Is their any possible way to save my data from the other operating
system which I can currently use?" - possibly
2. Also, can any one help me to attain
the drivers for ASUS z91? Most of the needed drivers for an Asus Z91E are available at the Asus Website > http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=Z91E
Most corrupt files in Windows would not delete your Japanese My Documents. What would probably be gone would be ntldr, hal, various dlls and sys files but most of your .doc would remain intact. If you can boot using the English Win XP Pro and presuming you have 2 different usernames 1 for the Japanese and another 1 for the XP Pro, then chances are that you can still access the Japanese My Documents. It may not be shown but it should be there under the Japanese username.
Assumng you have administrator privileges, Click on Start, Control Panel, Folder Options, View, tick: Show hidden files & folders, untick hide extensions for known file types, untick hide protected operating system files.
This should expose what were hidden before. Of course it is a different problem altogether if you have the 2 OSes installed on 2 different partitions.
Hope this be of some help. Post back how things turn out or should you need additional information.
