Upgrading fro Windows XP MCE SP3 to Vista.

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Installation' started by Harold A. Climer, Aug 27, 2011.

  1. I have a HP A1520N Pavilion desktop
    computer that I would like to upgrade to Vista. It is now running
    Windows XP MCE SP3
    I have downloaded some Vista Drivers for my computer Model from the
    Hewlett Packard Web Site and they are EXE files.( I think they are
    self extracting Zip files) Where about in theVista install process
    would I use these files?
    Should I uncompress them(If possible) and put them on a CD?
    Could I install them after Vista is installed.
    The Drivers are for:
    1. Realtek High Definition Audio Driver Update
    2. NVIDIA nForce Serial ATA Controller Update
    3.NVIDIA Graphics Driver Update
    4.HP Enhanced Multimedia PS/2 and USB Keyboard Driver Update
    5.Microsoft Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE Controller Update
    6.Samsung P120S SP2X04C Series Hard Disk Drive Firmware Update
    7.LightScribe System Software Update
    Any help would be most appreciated.

    Microsoft closed its news server, last year (2010). As a result, this
    Usenet group virtually died.

    Wait until Vista prompts you.

    Coincidentally, Harold: That was quite a gridiron clobbering Nebraska
    gave Tennessee-Chattanooga, a week ago (Saturday afternoon, Sept. 3,
    2011). 40-7 is pretty decisive, no?
