Windows 7: 3D DriveGuard drivers on nc8430

3D DriveGuard drivers on nc8430


Got a nc8430 laptop which is vista capable.
Anyways installed W7 x86 yesterday and I couldn't make DriveGuard to support my drive.
I tried various combination of drivers from version 3.0 rev C to the latest wich are specifically made for W7.
With older drivers i got only "Notebook hard drive not supported".
With newer drivers i had:
- Notebook hard drive not supported
- Multibay hard drive supported

So what's the problem here?
Did anyone manage to install DriveGuard with their older laptop on Windows 7?

I would be very thankful if someone could provide a solution or help me out here.

Thanks in advanced

Been messing around with drivers in device manager and here's what I found:

The HP Disk Filter driver (hpdskflt.sys) is located: C:\Windows\system32\drivers
When i view "Mobile data protection sensor" driver in device manager under details the hpdskflt.sys is shown as signed
Now i went for my disk driver and under details the hpdskflt.sys driver is under C:\Windows\system32\DRIVERS (notice the caps) and IS NOT digitally signed
so far i know the file locations are both the same yet the file appears signed under one, and not signed under the other one
This is seriously messed up
I tried removing the hpdskflt.sys AFTER uninstalling all DriveGuard drivers yet some older (3.1.0) version of the file (as opposed to the newest when the latest driveguard drivers are installed) but i end up with BSOD if i do that
How do I even completely clean all traces of DriveGuard drivers??
