[5] Not all "Compatible Operating Systems" are supported with inbox software. Full solution software available only for Windows 7 and newer. Legacy Windows Operating Systems (Vista and equivalent servers) get print and scan drivers only. Windows RT OS for Tablets (32-bit/64-bit) uses a simplified HP print driver built into the RT OS. UNIX modelscripts are available on http://www.hp.com (modelscripts are printer drivers for UNIX operating systems). Linux systems use in-OS HPLIP software. HP Software for Mac is no longer included on the CD, but can be downloaded from http://www.hp.com. The Mac printer drivers are installed for Mac operating systems.

[6] May require a firmware upgrade to be compatible, download at http://www.hp.com/go/support.
