    I've visited but the model was not listed and my friends have already sent for feedback to include in the listings.

    And even if compatible, HP didn't give any Windows 8 drivers for this model. Then how to get the drivers?

    You could just install Windows 8 and see if all the drivers will be there. Windows 8 has a pretty good driver cashe by itself... and using the Windows 8 Update feature may even find drivers for your Computer

    I know that MS will give the needed drivers. I actually need backup of drivers, so that no need to waste time in downloading.

    I ran the pre-release Windows 8 on this computer and had no trouble with drivers at all

    Thanks for confirming the compatibility but where do I get the drivers for backup other than windows update? HP didn't give drivers to download.
