Windows Update on Vista
Before my upgrade to Vista I had been pretty impressed by Windows Update and I was impressed by the install experience of Vista, all my drivers seemed to be on the DVD or seamlessly downloaded.
However last night I checked on the HP web site and was pleased to see Windows Vista drivers listed but then pretty surprised to see that none of the latest drivers had been downloaded via Windows Update. Updates were available for:
- Disk controller
So I looked around for an auto updater (I previously always used ibm Thinkpads and I was used to an automatic updater for all my drivers) but the best HP seem to offer is an email subscription or RSS feed.
Bottom line – don’t rely on Windows Update!
