I installed Windows Vista on my HP Mini 1035NR but it looks like the internal microphone is not working. Are there any plans to make Vista drivers available?
Thanks in advance!

I have a HP Mini 1033CL and just installed the release candidate of Windows 7 Build 7100. Installation seemed to detect audio just fine, but as with previous posters, my microphone didn't work. Additionally, the webcam would only display a black screen in Skype.
I did some digging around and found a solution. The hardware id for the HD Audio Controller on the Mini 1033CL (made by IDT) is: HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_111D&DEV_7608&SUBSYS_103C361A
I'm not sure if this is the same on the Mini 1000 or later models, but you can find your hardware id by going into device manager and getting to details on the properties of the audio controller.
I found this thread dslreports.com which provides links to audio controller drivers based on hardware id.
In this post, there is a link to HP driver package (intended for Notebooks) that had driver that included the hardware ID of the audio controller on my Mini 1033.
I ran the installer on my Windows 7 Mini 1033CL. While it errored at the end of the installation, I rebooted my netbook, and the updated drivers were successfully installed. I was going to attempt manually updating the drivers via device manager, but realized that the drivers had successfully installed despite the error. To my delight, the external microphone now works! Additionally, the webcam is now working and successfully capturing video in skype!
Hopefully, you will have the same success with this.

I used that driver on Vista and it does see the external mic but it is not picking up sound. I checked the settings to make sure it was not on mute. I believe it is the drivers. The good new about that install is it fixed the poor sound quality that I was getting.
Any ideas HP to when you are going to get this fixed?

I misphrased - I meant internal mic (the one in the LCD display) not external. And to clarify, I installed the driver on an HP Mini 1137HR.
