Proper OS License for each PC 

IMPORTANT 

This document does not provide a license to create and/or distribute an 
operating system image. This document is intended to be a technical 
resource for those who have the proper license to deploy Microsoft 
Windows operating systems. 
The operating system license shipped with HP PCs does not grant re-
imaging and deployment rights. Before using the document to deploy an 
image, please contact your Microsoft licensing representative to obtain the 
proper license agreements. HP cannot be held liable if a customer uses this 
document to create or deploy an image that violates Microsoft license 
agreements.   

Note 

Make sure you have the latest compatible version of Microsoft Windows 
drivers and enhancements.  Previous versions may not have been tested in 
this environment.  

The HP Support Software CD is updated monthly and available by annual 
subscription or as a one-time purchase.  You can also download all files, 
including the most current available ROM for the platform, from the HP 
website 

www.hp.com

.  See Appendix A for information on determining the 

current ROM version and how to update.

Appendix D:  Questions and answers 

 

Q .

 

Is the HP Compaq 8510p Notebook PC preinstall image also compatible with the HP Compaq 

6910p and Compaq 8710p notebooks? 

A .

 

Yes, the updated preinstalled software image has been tested with the Compaq 6910p and 
Compaq 8710p notebooks. 

Q .

 

If a new model is introduced, will all previously released models in the family, that are still
