HP Probook 4530s and Windows 10

Product Name: HP Probook 4530s
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I am wanting to upgrade to Windows 10, and was wondering if most Windows 8.1 drivers were compatible with the new operating system. I will be upgrading from Windows 7, and I have checked the support page for my specific model without any luck finding Windows 10 drivers. I will keep checking back, but I thought I would at least check to see what others might be experiencing.

This is a early and only time will tell..but from the Reads it should work fine upgrading and since no one two computers are the same so will the problem as well.

Hi there. Did you have any luck upgrading to Win10? I tried, and my network adapters were missing afterward.

Re: HP Probook 4530s and Windows 10

Hi jefmitch, I successfully installed Windows 10 without any hangups. I am sorry you were having issues with your network drivers. You might can try dowloading them from the computer's profile here:

You might can try using the Windows 8.1 drivers for your specific network adapter. I would also check on the manufacturers website for specific updates. I also did not install a fresh copy of Windows 10 but upgraded from Windows 7. Hope this helps.

Re: HP Probook 4530s and Windows 10

I was already upgraded to Win8.1, and even tried the drivers with no luck. The weird thing is the adapters were listed in device manager, but the network connections were missing. I'm trying a few other things I read, such as uninstalling any VPN software before upgrading. Ugh...

Re: HP Probook 4530s and Windows 10

Jefmitch,

 

I am thinking the VPN software/connections could be the kicker. I essentially did a fresh install of Windows 7, ran every single update available as of yesterday, and then ran the Windows 10 installer. I was not running in a Windows 8.1 environment previously, so I am not sure what might be the issue in your case.

 

Also, make sure that your devices have been enable. This article might be helpful.

It was the VPN software. Removed Cisco AnyConnect VPN, rebooted, then went through the upgrade successfully. What a pain in the a**

Re: HP Probook 4530s and Windows 10

An Intel Graphics Beta driver for Windows*10 can be found in Windows Update. Please run Windows Update from within Windows or visit Microsoft’s Windows Update Web site.

 

Windows Update is included in the Windows Control Panel. To check for updates within Windows, Click the Start button, click All Programs, and then click Windows Update.
