MODEL 17z-cp000
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

Good morning guys, I purchased a new laptop a couple of weeks ago that was running Windows 10, it crashed with a software issue 

I had a licensed Windows 8.1 Pro install disk which I much prefer over windows 10 so added a second SS 2.5” drive & installed 8.1 Pro

 

my issue is that Windows 8.1 disk does not have the drivers for the combo network/Bluetooth adapter in the laptop & I cannot connect to the internet to download a driver/software file

i am subscribed to driver toolkit & love that program

Cam someone help me find a driver that will at least let me connect to the internet & then I know driver toolkit will fix all my driverd

Hi:

 

You will need to use a USB wifi adapter to connect to the Internet.

 

HP only has Windows 10 drivers for the Realtek AX wifi adapter your notebook comes with.
