Windows 7 Professional x64

Just wanted to comment here. The reason this works is because the USB port on the left is 3.0, the one on the right is 2.0.

Also just wanted to say thanks to Shogun for posting the fix.

I spent a good day and a half at work scrambling through HP site's trying to figure out which driver I could use.
