Cannot find Drivers for Windows 8.

[ Edited ]

Hello All,

 

I just installed Windows 8 on my HDX 16 and I quickly found out the drivers for the network adapters are not installed by default. When I go to HP's website, there are no drivers for Windows 8, just Windows 7. When I tried installing windows 7 drivers, it told me it was the wrong verson. That was for the Ethernet port. For my wifi, it's telling me I need to have .net framework 2.0 or higher, and won't let me install that driver. After making sure I installed the latest version, it still doesn't detect that I have the latest .net. 


I'm not sure why HP does not have support for Windows 8 drivers, so any help would be appreciated.

 

EDIT: Scratch that. It appears to recognize the driver after several restarts.
