    I've decided to take on the duty to post the latest drivers that are compatible with the following notebooks. It is part of my ongoing, informal commitment to help assist those who had performed clean installs on their HP notebooks. Please let me know if you find newer drivers or other devices so I can update this post!

    Compatible Notebooks

    Drivers
    All of these drivers come from HP's website, Microsoft Update, and from other reputable websites (including other manufacturers). All of the drivers here are also WHQL Certified or digitally signed drivers, available as of the date when this post was updated. These drivers should be compatible with the notebook series stated above, but I am not responsible for technical difficulties that can occur as a result of improper driver installation!

    Following along the same lines as the other driver threads, the process of installing and updating drivers is for ADVANCED/EXPERIENCED users only. Average users can use the drivers located at the HP support portals -- they're the safest and simplest way to go in terms of drivers for your specific model. Some of these drivers may work with notebooks other than the stated brand and models, but this is NOT guaranteed. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK -- only install these drivers if you know how to revert the changes that you have made should any problems be encountered.

    Intel Chipset Device Software


    Important Information

    • To ensure that all device drivers are updated, simply execute the downloaded setup file using the -overall parameter.
    • Example: If you saved the downloaded file as infinst911autol.exe to the root directory of C: drive, you can launch the Run command (Windows key + R) and insert "C:\infinst911autol.exe -overall" in the Open field (without the quotes). Press OK to begin the interactive installation process.
    • Starting with Intel Chipset Device Software package version 9.2.0.1016, the Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver may become overwritten with the driver that exists in the package if it is installed. Should such an instance occur, reinstall the Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver afterwards.

    • Version 10.0.14 originates from and is provided by Micro-Star International (MSI). The zip package contains the setup installer and release notes.

    Intel Rapid Storage Technology

    Important Information

    • Intel Rapid Storage Technology was previously known as Intel Matrix Storage Manager.
    • It is highly recommended that you install this even if RAID is not configured on your system. See Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST) - Product overview for more information.
    • If you are having problems with the Interactive Setup wizard, use the INF Install method instead. This allows the driver to be installed using the Device Manager - Update Driver wizard. Once the driver is installed, you can try the Interactive Setup wizard again to ensure that the software is correctly installed.

    This thread is now open to allow for discussion pertaining to the drivers for these notebooks.

    Seeing how these notebooks have not been released yet, the first post is not quite complete; there are a still a few components and things that need to be added or confirmed. Stay tuned! :)

    The HP SimplePass 2011 software is created by Authentec. I've tried it and I didn't think it worked as well as the DigitalPersona Personal fingerprint software. As a result, I have not posted this up.

    If possible, I prefer that the DigitalPersona software be used instead.
