Is there a way to fix this?  Seems like there should be something in the troubleshooting tools to directly look at the adapter....  Some way to get the software to load.

On Boot-up the Wifi adapter will be missing from the Device Manager - and no WiFi connection is possible.  Network Troubleshooting with windows tools and with the HP tool are both useless as they simply ask for an ethernet cable to be connected.
Looking at the adapter in the device manager, there is a event that says an additional install is required.  Shut-Down will fail, then after forced shutdown, the WiFi will be present.

And then, it starts working:

Oh, and turning Airplane Mode on and off doesn't make anything start working.
