    No, Windows 8. They *may* work in Windows 7 though.

    As for working fine? Hehe. Sort of..? Have you been seeing the brightness debacle with switchable graphics? HP totally screwed up the driver inf and I had to fix it in the registry afterwards so as to not unsign the drivers.

    I also sent another email to that Marc at AMD asking for any new info, he said he can't discus new drivers that haven't been released lolol, OKyyy but that he's keeping his fingers crossed for me lolololol..............

    My solution won't work for him, because he has to make it work for everyone and mine has to be customized, depending on model. I am sure there is more than one way to skin a cat in this case.

    Okyyy so since I have a HP I assume the reg download should work on my rig though, or do I need some other number due to being a dv7 not a envy? I checked on some specs, and I think I have just about the same as the envy anyway, this thing has all that crap, BT, 1920x1080 screen, wireless bt, BD player, beats audio, and the other usual crap. I do like this steel brushed look case though, it doesn't show the finger prints at all.

    It will work for you, if the initial value is the same. I don't recall the value you gave me.

    Speaking only for myself, the new HP drivers work great. HP Pavilion DV7-6135dx.
