Additional Notes

Gateway's site does not list XP drivers for most of the devices in the MX6431; this was listed for the MX6453, which appears to have the same board. It works for both, and possibly for others. You must first install the MS HDA bus driver; it is included with this download. Further instructions are in readme.txt. The board itself is a Blade-K8F.
