I did a support chat with HP last night and the DC5000 is no longer supported. I was able however able to download a bunch of drivers, but came up empty in regard to recovery media.Finding it for sale on EBay in and of itself is a red flag. You need to contact HP Support to find out what your options are.
I don't get how HP still has drivers to download, but no software. I need XP to run Mach3 program. Will try to contact Microsoft and see what I can do there. HP said to call Bestbuy or Staples, but no luck there either. Thanks.I figured that it wouldn't be supported any longer, but I would have hoped they'd have given you alternatives to try.
