|This package contains the Bluetooth USB Device Firmware Update (DFU) Utility for the listed desktop models and operating systems. |
The Bluetooth DFU utility is used to upgrade or reconfigure the firmware for the HP USB Bluetooth Transceiver 1.2. The firmware can be reconfigured to use either the native Microsoft Windows XP Bluetooth drivers or the WIDCOMM Bluetooth software. The HP USB Bluetooth Transceiver 1.2 ships configured for use the WIDCOMM Bluetooth software.
If you choose not to install the WIDCOMM software that is provided with the HP USB Bluetooth Transceiver 1.2, you can reconfigure the transceiver to use the Microsoft Bluetooth drivers included in Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) in order to enable Bluetooth components to function in Bluetooth wireless mode.
The Microsoft Bluetooth drivers included in Microsoft Windows XP SP2 do not provide "first boot" or "recovery" capabilities. For recovery and first boot
requirements, a wired USB keyboard and/or mouse should be readily available. In
addition, if the Microsoft Bluetooth drivers are used, the Connect button on
the USB transceiver does not function.
The Microsoft drivers support limited Bluetooth profiles. Check the Microsoft
website at www.microsoft.com for updated listings.
"First boot" capability refers to the ability to use a Bluetooth wireless keyboard and Bluetooth wireless mouse in USB emulation mode while the computer boots, then switching to Bluetooth wireless mode (once the operating system has loaded) without connecting a wired keyboard to enable the system to recognize the keyboard.
"Recovery" capability refers to the ability to replace a faulty Bluetooth wireless keyboard with a functioning Bluetooth wireless keyboard without first being required to connect a wired keyboard to enable the system to recognize the keyboard.
