I'm going to install Windows 8 on my HP Pavilion dv6-6170sl but I'm not sure if there is any way to have on W8 the new drivers and softwares developed by HP for the new laptops.
In particular I need some information about the possibility to install Simplepass and the other softwares incuded in the pc although it isn't one of the newest dv6 laptops and HP doesn't provide anything official for it about windows 8.
Thank you for your time.

i'm running Windows 864 bit Preview Release [dual boot with Win 7 64 bit] and installed the Windows 7 driver for the fingerprint reader along with simplepass software. This seems to work as it should .
If you want to try, just go to the download drivers for your model at HP and download the fingerprint reader software for Windows 7.

I am using Pavillion m6. It came with Windows 7 Home Premium. I upgrated it to Windows 8 with the online delivery from Microsoft. But now I am facing problem with drivers. I tried downloading Drivers from the HP site. But the drivers are not getting downloaded. The product is Under Warranty. How can I get a hard copy of the driver? or I have to purchase it?
