    Installed Vista Beta 2 with no problems, it dual-boots alongside XP Media
    Center on my new HP Pavillion a1410n. All the hardware worked immediately
    after the install without having to install any drivers, except for the
    sound. There are no flags in Device Manager, however the audio icon in the
    taskbar says that there is no audio device installed. I attempted to install
    the XP drivers from HP, but the install fails, telling me that I need the
    Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture Driver to be installed first. Any
    help is appreciated.

    Vista is not XP. It uses a different method for the drivers. If you
    can't get any from HP or whoever makes the soundcard, you're stuffed
    for now.

    Well for all of those that are just as frustrated as I was here is a bit of
    relief.
    I spent 6 hours trying to fight this system and as all great discoveries
    this just came as if from heaven.
    I am using an an HP Pavillion and decided to install an Audigy 2 Value
    soundcard.
    At first after finishing my installation of Vista 64 it notified me that
    there was no driver for my sound card.
    I ran the Vista 64 and it did not complete saying that my software was not
    supported by it. After a while I diecided to see if I coul reinstall the XP
    64 driver and all went great with the exeption that there was no sound coming
    out of it in spite of the device driver saying that all laws wll.
    Frustrated I decided to re-install the Vista 64 driver and after two
    attempts voila!!
    Sound was coming out of it as if by a miracle. …old windows theme I must
    warn you! The sound is of good quality. But there is only one thing and that
    is my microphone is not working right. I want to take advantage of the speech
    recognition software built in. It worked for me before I hope they have not
    messed with it too much
    I hope that this helps some people out there.
    Now if I could figure out how to import my Outlook contacts, the import
    feature is not working for me.

    Are you using on board audio?
    Then you need to go and download the realtek drivers and that should help
