I have a HP Pavillion G6-2205AX notebook which came pre-installed with Windows 8. However I have just recently purchased a software package which was worth $500 3 months ago to find out that it doesn't run on Windows 8 only Windows 7.
So I need for the interim to downgrade to Windows 7. Now this is apparently fully covered under the HP warranty policy =
My issue is that I can't find any of the Windows 7 drivers for this notebook, and the ones that I do don't work.
I have tried the HP Australian site for downloads for Windows 7 but the only drivers that work are the Bluetooth ones. The rest do not!
Please could someone direct me to the right drivers please. Basically just need network, cabled and wireless.
Cheers in anticipation

I don't see any specs on your model. I will assume you have an AMD processor and chipset, as I didn't see any Intel drivers listed on your notebook's support and driver page.
If that is so, then you need to first install the AMD chipset driver which will reduce a chunk of the missing devices.
First file listed is what you want.
Then, see if the drivers from this related model work for you.
If you don't get 100% success, please post the hardware ID's for any drivers you still need.
If you don't know where to find the hardware ID, please read the info at the link below.
