HP drivers

Most HP drivers (audio, graphics, keyboard, network, input devices etc.) come as InstallShield packages. The installer usually have name like sp<number>.exe, for example, sp32556.exe is the name for Broadcom network drivers.

HP installers save its data into C:\SWSetup.


Sometimes, they will install silently with a /s switch, i.e.:

%SOFTWARE%\nx6325\SP35445\setup.exe /s


Sometimes, setup.iss is provided with InstallShield package, i.e.:

%SOFTWARE%\nx6325\SP37155\setup.exe /s /sms /f1%SOFTWARE%\nx6325\SP37155\setup.iss

Unfortunately, sometimes manual intervention is needed (i.e., using other InstallShield switches, recording the installation etc.), so there is no golden rule here.


Sometimes, after starting the installer, you will find an extracted MSI package in %TEMP%.

Note that not all drivers are available for all language versions of Windows. One example is "High-Speed Secure Digital (SD) Card Driver" for nx6325 laptops - it is not available for download i.e. in German, and English version will fail to install in a non-English Windows.


Silent installation of nx6325 laptop drivers[edit]

It doesn't cover all drivers (modem). Note that Windows XP SP2 does not have drivers for Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit card found in these laptops - you will have to integrate them in RIS / Unattended installation first.

For some reason, "HP Quick Launch Buttons" and "Synaptics Pointing Device Driver" don't want to install silently - so these two packages are commented out. Note for other comments - Processor driver can take very long to install.
