The LAN works, but the audio does not.  Also most importantly, I need the drivers that give the touch capability.

Hi,
You posted in the XP Section where I only found drivers for Vista :

It's very possible the driver doesn't exist for XP. If you have an app that won't run in Vista, try the windows 7 rc1 and its xp mode.

I knowit is your problem but that driver doesn't exist for xp.
windows 7 is a good solution compared to vista but careful, windows xp mode is not a way of emulating windows xp, it allows to virtualize windows xp applications that would not be compatible with 7 in order to make them work.
All apps and drivers designed for vista should normally work properly on 7

I solved this myself, I used next windows 3rd party software to control the Ir cameras that drive the touchscreen feature, I also ended up having to extract driver files from the installers and then manually installing them.. NIC was realtek GBE for PCI-e, audio was soundmax, video was nvidia mobile, chipset was intel... It took a lot of work but I got it working well..  The only info provided here was stuff I already got in the first 5 minutes of doing a google search so I cant in good faith award the points elsewhere.

I resolved it myself!  I gave 100 points to the first guy who copied and pasted some useful info from a thread on hp's site that i had already found.  At least it was some effort.

stconair, I'm having some issues with the drivers, I understand the ehome drivers are bundled into media center ed, but I'm not worried about that, I've been stuck trying to get audio working. Touch drivers were good off the bat, but that's because I switched it to HID compliant mouse mode before even installing xp.

I've got XP VLK with SP3 and I can NOT get UAA drivers to install correctly so I can put Soundmax HD audio drivers on. When installed the drivers give me a Code 10 error in device manager (device couldn't start due to faulty drivers.
I think the hang-up is the SP3 that's bundled into my VLK disk.  I've only heard problems with people that have SP3 installed after locating all the drivers!
