HP and Compaq Non-Supported PCs
HP does not support the upgrade from XP to Vista for non-HP Certified Vista capable PCs. HP provides neither Windows Vista drivers nor technical support for non HP-certified Windows Vista Capable PCs.
Attempting to install Windows Vista on a PC not listed as HP-certified Windows Vista Capable may cause a loss of your programs and personal data, and the PC and peripherals may operate with limited functionality or not at all.
If you encounter operation problems when using Windows Vista, HP recommends that you restore the PC to its original condition by doing a clean installation of Windows XP.
