    Unable to install vista / 7 orginal drivers for Windows 8.


    Hi

    my model is HP Pavilion Slimline s3760in Desktop PC

    HP Pavilion Slimline s3760in Desktop PC Product Specifications -- In product specifications you can notice that my OS was shipped with Windows Vista Home Premium with Windows Media Center (32-bit) with Vista Service Pack 1

    In NVidia website it has mentioned that all the oem model should download from manufacture like hp, dell website only.

    IF you check driver update for this model for windows vista 32bit you will notice original driver like keyboard, nvidia, etc.

    but if u choose operating system as windows 7 32-bit then again you will notice original driver like keyboard, nvidia, etc.

    so my queries is that i have recently installed windows 8.1 and i wanted these original files to be installed but dont know which one to pick from vista drivers or windows 7 drivers? but windows 7 drivers are latest when compare with vista.

    or should i download nvidia drivers from nvidia website? and also same goes with realtek audio driver from realtek website?

    Thanks

    Hello,

    We understand that many customers are receiving error 0xC1900101 – 0x40017 when installing Windows 8.1. This error is typically caused by an incompatible driver.



    If you are receiving this error:
    1.
    First, please double-check the error code. There are many variations of error 0xC1900101, each with a different location code -- the error extension, located after the dash. The information in this thread is intended only for location code 0x40017. If you are receiving a different location code, these steps are unlikely to resolve your issue.

    2.
    Check that you’ve already updated all of your drivers. In particular, if you have an NVIDIA GeForce graphics card, make sure you’ve installed the latest Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers


    3.
    Check that you do not have any Frequently Asked Questions - What devices are supported by the SteelSeries Engine? that support the SteelSeries Engine installed on your PC. The SteelSeries Engine software is currently not supported on Windows 8.1. Please uninstall the software before attempting to update to Windows 8.1
