    From what I've read on HP's, and as for as compatibility with other OS's, I think you will be out of luck for the Sensor.

    Sorry, wish I could help out more.

    There may be help for you later on with your sensory as companies adjust and update there software to deal with windows 7 :)

    Also windows 7 is not a final as yet so may include all kind of drivers - not sure as yet ?

    There is a topic on your query at the below link :

    Validity - Biometric Fingerprint Sensors - Validity Announces Support for Windows Biometric Framework in Windows 7

    Brief excerpt of interest : Validity’s fingerprint solutions are already shipping in numerous notebook PCs and PC peripheral devices offered by companies such as HP, Acer and General Dynamics. Validity’s fingerprint sensors are based on its LiveFlex® Technology, which provides superior durability and industry-leading impact resistance.
