Operating system updates

Use care when applying operating system updates (Service Packs, hotfixes, and patches). Before updating the operating system, read the release notes for each update. If you do not require specific fixes from the update, it is recommended that you do not apply the updates. Some updates overwrite files specific to HP.

If you decide to apply an operating system update:

  1. Perform a full system backup.
  2. Apply the operating system update, using the instructions provided.
  3. Install the current drivers.

If you apply the update and have problems, locate files to correct the problems on the HP website.
