Yup... I did NOT install Sync Manager (that sometimes interferes with some rooting activities), and just plugged my One into my laptop (Win 7 SP1). It found the required drivers with no problem, but I don't have the same restrictions you do. I'm replying only because you don't necessarily have to install HTC Sync Manager to get the required drivers. Good luck!
