Yes, sure. I talked to Rudolf about what is to do to get windows working.
His explanation was quite easy: You'll need the _CRS symbols in your dsdt.asl.

I had a look at his dsdt.asl from asus/m2v-mx_se, and saw that there are not 
much _CRS symbols in it.
Keyboard, Mouse, Floppy, and the PCI root device has _CRS Symbols.
Afterward I had a look at my disassembled vendors dsdt.asl, and added the _CRS 
Symbols with the values for my hardware.

The first try on installing the windows 7 build 7100 lead into a "STOP: 
0x0000005a 0x000000d ... ... ..."
I had a look at the "STOP 0x000000A5" page from Microsoft's support site [1], 
and discovered that Parameter1 0xd means that there is some _HID or _ADR 
symbol missing.

After rechecking my dsdt.asl with Rudolf's I found quite fast out that he had 
an _ADR value for Device(ISA), so I added this value according to my hardware, 
and tried again installing Win7.

That was all, which has lead to success with coreboot and windows. :)
