HP Start Free Microsoft Windows Vista Upgrade Program
Posted on 14-Dec-2006 10:34 | Tags Filed under: News



HP customers can now register qualifying consumer PCs for a free Microsoft Windows Vista operating system upgrade. By requesting an upgrade, the majority of customers will receive a kit with a Windows Vista upgrade DVD and an additional DVD with drivers needed to complete the process.

The HP DVD offers a simple, step-by-step guide that helps ensure customers follow the correct procedure when upgrading their PCs.

In addition to the driver disk, HP will have drivers available via the HP Support website for customers to download. HP plans to update the Windows Vista drivers page as additional drivers become available so customers can have access to the most current versions.

HP has worked to help ensure that HP imaging and printing products work smoothly with Windows Vista, testing and developing drivers for more than 450 consumer, small business, and enterprise HP imaging and printing products, including HP LaserJet and inkjet printers, cameras and scanners.

When used in conjunction with Windows Vista, HP Update will download relevant software as well as technical support content such as user guides and troubleshooting tips right on the PC. HP Update is a tool that 8 million customers currently use to automatically update software on their PCs.

Customers who have purchased a new HP Pavilion, Compaq Presario or HP Digital Entertainment Center PC designated “Microsoft Windows Vista Capable” between 26 October 2006 and 15 March 2007, direct from HP or select retailers are eligible for a free upgrade to Windows Vista when it becomes available in early 2007.

Customers may request an upgrade to the version of Windows Vista equivalent to the system’s existing, qualifying version of Windows XP.

Currently HP has released this information for North American consumer products only.
