    (Thanks to everyone who posted newer drivers)

    (Sorry for possible mistakes with the name of some settings, my Windows 8 install is in Portuguese.)


    Please post if you see anything missing or have issues with a driver that might cause issues.


    Make sure Windows Update doesn't install the Synaptics and/or Intel HD Graphics from Windows Update (uncheck and hide the updates)

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Install the .NET 2.0/3.0 framework > "Control Panel - Uninstall a program - Turn Windows features on or off - Check the box and click OK)

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Latest drivers:

    (2G Core i3/i5 Tm2 Only) :
    [Drivers] HP dm4-1XXX / dv5-2XXX / G32 / CQ32 / ENVY 14-1XXX (INTEL) (Thanks to justinkw1 for his work).

    Install the following:

    Intel Chipset Device Software
    Intel Rapid Storage Technology
    Intel Turbo Boost Technology (Core i5 only)
    IDT High Definition Audio Codec
    Realtek PCIe Gigabit Ethernet Family Controller
    HP Quick Launch Software - 3.0.5 (3.00 A5) doesn't work, download 2.7.2 (2.70 A2)

    Latest Wacom Driver - 7.1.0-14-46:

    Synaptics TouchPad / ClickPad - Scrolling might be inverted, to fix go to the Synaptics settings, scrolling, check the inversion box, apply, uncheck the box again, apply. Set an higher scroll speed. Top and right Windows 8 gestures work.

    HP Mobile Data Protection Sensor
    Install adequate Wi-Fi and Bluetooth drivers for your model

    Double check that the drivers install through the Setup. If they don't, use the Device Manager to update by searching the SWSetup folder.

    Restart as necessary

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    HP Software Framework - Required for QuickLaunch drivers to work

    HP Software Framework v.4.6.10.1

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Biometric Driver & Software:

    Validity Sensors (WBF) VFS301 - Unpack and go to the Device Manager - Right click the unknown device - Properties - Controller - Update - Look for software on the computer - Navigate to the folder (defaults on C:\SP56403)

    HP SimplePass 6.0.100.252 Software - You might have the USB issue described by SDreamer here

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Card Reader

    Alcor Micro USB 2.0 Card Reader v.1.0.36.103

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Switchable Graphics - Unified Leshcat Drivers:

    Install the unofficial modified Catalyst drivers available here:Unified Leshcat Drivers

    Be sure to follow all installation instructions and read the descriptions!

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Intel Rotation Fix (Should no longer be necessary)

    Enable the AMD GPU.

    1)Press Win+R and write "regedit"

    2)Navigate to [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\]

    3)With "Control" highlighted go to Edit - Find - write "rotation" and click Find Next

    4)It should take you to the {4d36...} - 0000 key section. If you're in the right section, there should be a key called "Device Description - REG_SZ - Intel(R) HD Graphics.

    5)Set every "rotation" key DWORD to 1, except "RotationCaps", which should be set to 7. (Just press F3 to go to the next key)

    6)Reboot

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hope this helps! Feel free to add newer drivers to this thread, I will update this post.

    After tinkering more with Wacom drivers, there is no actual working driver that works for the tm2's Wacom digitizer at this time.

    Does the following AMD driver fix work with 4450?

    No, you can however install the latest AMD driver for Windows 7, it'll work as long as you install it in compatibility mode!

    Sorry for noobing around like this, but could you provide me with a link? Tried 12.1 of catalyst manager but screen turned off during installation and had to recover. I can't find the single-file driver. Many thanks in advance.

    Edit: My device manager thinks its a 4500 series radeon, but i have a tm2 1080-eo which only comes with 4450 if i remember correctly. I think this is giving me some trouble..

    I also have the tm2 1080-eo, installing the old original intel\ati sp50254.exe in win 7 comp. works and it switches. The big problem is updating the ati graphics.

    I have tried 12-1_mobility_vista_win7_64_dd_ccc_ocl (currently with win7) It either hangs or do not install. Just managed to update hdmi audio driver.

    Edit.

    3G module un2420 works.

    In win7 comp install sp51022.exe and (optional) hp wireless assistant sp48392.exe. No need for the connection manager i think.

    Switchable graphics did not work for me. Right after installing the OS I accepted the suggested Windows Updates. Among those updates there was an ATI driver. I wonder if installing that update prevented the switchable driver made by HP from installing properly. I tried to uninstall the ATI driver provided by MS, but after rebooting it got re-installed automatically again. Is there away to permanently rid the system from a driver so that you can replace it with the particular version of the driver you like?

    The other thing that happened is that I lost my GRUB menu. I had Kubuntu installed in its own partition and it's still there, but I can no longer access it without GRUB. Is there a way to re-install GRUB without re-installing Linux?

    You installed the AMD Consumer Preview Driver, which has no switchable support. Try to go to the Control Panel - Hardware and Sound - Device Manager, right click on the ATI display adapter - Uninstall - Delete the driver software for this adapter.

    If that doesn't work, maybe a system restore will do the trick!

    I tried that, but before I have time to install the switchable driver, Windows reinstalls the driver I had just removed. I might try a re-install of Win8.

    So far I'm not very excited about this new OS. Does the keyboard pop up for you when click on a text box? What about flicks?

    Keyboard pops up in metro, doesn't seem to in desktop IE at least, but there is a shortcut on the taskbar that is easy to tap on. Flicks are pen only, (but in metro IE you can drag to the right and left to go back/forward through pages, which is very cool).
