A few days ago HP started posting Windows XP drivers and software for the Mini-Note on the company’s web site. But there were a few things missing, most notably the audio driver. Sure, you could configure Windows XP to use the Windows Vista driver with a little tweaking, but it’s not a perfect fit.

But now it looks like HP’s got a full set of drivers and support software available for download. That includes an audio driver, a BIOS image, Bluetooth, WiFI, flash card reader drivers, a system update for Windows XP SP2, and even a copy of WinDVD 8 SE (which is kind of funny considering the Mini-Note doesn’t have an optical disc drive).

There are a couple of other goodies on the support page too, so whether you’ve already installed Windows XP on your Mini-Note or you plan to, you should probably check it out. Keep in mind, you don’t need all of these files to install Windows XP. But I’d recommend using the audio, chipset, network, and storage file at the very least.
