Note 2: On Windows XP and Windows 2000 (and early versions of 2003) you
need to install a QFE to allow an HD Audio driver to install. This QFE is

components before installing the audio driver. The QFE contains the
required files and a readme which outlines installation procedure.
This QFE and these files are distributed by Microsoft only; please contact
them directly if you need to get them. The QFE's may be included in the
latest Service Packs for some Operating systems.
