The Problem (For Me) was not with any HP driver, in my case the issue was solved by running the Driver update scan on the INTEL website (Maker of my bluetooth hardware) and then installing the Bluetooth hardware driver update. as soon as this installed it immediately connected to the speaker and i was rocking.
Here's the link:
Enjoy and hopefully your experience is close to that of mine!

For a long time I searched the forums to connect with my bose HP EliteBook 8560p. I tried different drivers for possible recommendations from the manufacturer, but finally succeeded after downloading from these sites HP new driver "Software and driver for the Broadcom 2070 Bluetooth" in the network. So, my BOSE sound no longer plays beautifully on my HP. Wow.
Now switch on the notebook and Bose is now connected. Everything works. I recommend it to set the sound card eqvalizer, the sound can then tweak to perfection.

After a whole day of searching and digging I have found the solution.
Uninstall the old driver (remove the driver) and install the driver from the link:
It takes a bit to install, but after that it works perfectly!
It does take some time for the install to complete, I went through it twice but finally GOT IT!! thanks for the link to the driver.

Spent hours on my envy 16 to have my bose soundlink colour connect after an update to 8.1.
None of the solutions proposed here worked, but I finally made it work based on a variant of the solution proposed here:
Step 1: Go to RUN (Windows Logo + R) and type “services.msc” and Enter.
Step 2: Find “Bluetooth Support Service” and double click on it.
Step 3: In General Tab change startup type Manual to Automatic. Click Apply
At this stage, try to do right click – Start on the service
If you have the same problem as mine, you should see an error 1079: The account specified for this service is different from the account specified for other services running in the same process.
Step 4: Find “Bluetooth Support Service” and double click on it.
Step 5: Click on Log On Tab and mark on “This Account” - From now on my solution is different from the URL listed above
Click on "Browse"
Click on "Advanced"
Click on Find Now
Select LOCAL SERVICE, then OK, then back to service properties
Remove the passwords
Step 6: Try right click - start on the Bluetooth service again. If it starts you are all set! The PC should now find your Bluetooth speaker
Hope this works for you too...

2 seconds to connect an Ipad to Bose Soundlink Mini, 2 days to connect the same speakers to HP laptop !!! and i doesn't yet work !!!
Windows 8 is a big **bleep** and if HP wants continue to live you should have leave Microsoft.
My next laptop will be a Mac it's sure.

I have Window 10 (recently upgraded from Windows 7). The following method worked for me.
1. Pair your Bose device via Bluetooth
2. Go to Control Panel
3. Select Hardware and Sound option
4. Under Sound select Manage Audio Devices
5. Select the Bose device as your default playback device
You are all set. Enjoy

This last set of steps works fine when you are using Windows 10 and you want to play You Tube or Groove Music (looks like a resident Windows Music application) on your Bose Bluetooth mini Speaker. Unfortunately it still does not let me play iTunes music using the Apple music app. Fortunately, the Groove Music application that came with my Dell XPS 15 allows for importing iTunes music in the Goove Music settings menu.

Go to Hp Support Center, Select your Operating system, -> from "Driver -Network" option, down load Broadcom Bluetooth Software ( American, International) . This is a 263 MB exe file. Run it and restart your computer.
Once restarted, keep your Bose mini "on". and try pairing via bluetooth. It worked fine for me on my HP Elitebook...Happy listening. :-)
