Try asking HP for a VISTA HP Driver DVD.
I know there is one since when I ordered my Free Vista upgrade for my recently purchased HP Laptop the shiping list for my upgrade includes a 32 bit Vista Premium DVD and a HP VISTA Driver DVD.
Apparently with the thousands of drivers being submitted to MS in the last month MS has not yet had a chance to qualify all of them so they are not available yet at installation of the RTM version.

why do you not get drivers from HP.
microsoft is not in the business of creating SPECIAL drivers for hardware.

I have just bought a new HP Compaq nc8430 because there was a note "Windows
Vista capable" stuck to it. I have not been able to install neither Ultimate
RC1 edition, nor Business final edition nor Enterprise final edition, neither
using clean installation nor upgrade from XP. It starts the installation and
at the very last reboot i appears the blue screen with white words or
"unable to finish the installation" message. I have spoken to HP and they say
that it is Microsoft fault, because they have not issued the drivers yet. If
anyone from Microsoft is reading this, please tell me when will those drivers
be ready or if, anyone knows the fix, please tell me.
I must use the laptop for my Vista classes.
