    HOW TO USE:
    1. Download the file by clicking the "Download" or "Obtain Software" button and
    saving the file to a folder on your hard drive (make a note of the folder where
    the downloaded file is saved).

    2. Double-click the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions.

    3. Reboot the notebook after the installation is complete.

    NOTES:

    - After the files are unpacked, the Setup program runs automatically. If the
    setup program (Setup.exe) needs to be run manually, look for it in the download
    directory.

    - For HP Notebooks that support Cisco Compatible Extensions, if the Broadcom IHV
    Extensions are not required, add the command line argument "-noccx" to the
    setup.exe command line string. If HP System Software Manager (SSM) is used, and
    the Broadcom IHV Extensions are not required, add the command line argument
    "-noccx" to the SilentInstall command line in the CVA file.
