Good luck... The only way I got the CD was when I purchased the finger print reader for my 4400. The problem I have is that I can't find the x64 TPM driver (btpmwx64.sys). It is not included in SP35460 as it suppose to be.

I don't know the legal-ness of this, but if you extract SP34827, and run the individual setup.exe files found in the subfolders, you should be able to accomplish the installation manually.

If you take any of the applications you want to install that checks for CDs etc, you can see that the installation files (once expanded) have a batch file that runs that is easily circumvented to show what needs to run and in which order, once it is "validated". Just run these files manually to complete an installation without the missing CD.
