Heh, how would I go about that?
when you click on the download button on HP's website internet explorer, firefox or chrome etc, should pop up a window asking you if you want to open or save the file.
if you save the file you can specify where you want to save it.
most people have a "downloads" folder and put everything in there. some people prefer to save it to "desktop" so they can find it very easy.
you can basically save it anywhere you want to.
so once it's done downloading it will ask if you want to run it. click no or cancel. then decide which media you want to put it on (cd, dvd, thumbdrive etc)
if you do cd or dvd you'll have to open up a seperate program for burning them and find the file you downloaded and let the program burn the files to a disk.
a thumbdrive is much easier and faster. basically put it in a usb slot copy and paste the file into the thumbdrive and viola..
now take the cd, dvd or thumbdrive to the other computer, open it up to view the files and open the file, here is where things get a little harder because you need to find the .EXE install.
look for any file that ends with .exe HP more than likely labeled it install.exe
or start.exe something along those lines. this "executable" will start the install process.
