Windows 7 drivers on Windows 8.1

HP Recommended
HP Compaq 6200
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

Hello, 

 

We are trying to upgrade our HP Compaq 6200 from Windows 7 to Windows 8.1 using Windows Deployment Services(WDS),

 

The issue that we have is that I could not find the softpaq for the HP Compaq 6200 for 8.1 and only the driver pack for Windows 7, 

 

Is there a way to install the Windows 7 drivers or to make the driver packto be able to do the self install like the softpaqs do for newer devices?

 

Thanks!

About all you can do with the HP drivers is use the 7-Zip tool to extract the softpaq archives into their constituent components, and then install those like any other driver.

 

You can get 7-Zip from here: http://www.7-zip.org/

 

Good Luck
