you need to reformat and do a clean install then use the 64 bit drivers that are not loaded during install.The vista 64 bit drivers on the dell site will work!
Thanks, Area 51.....
You've confirmed my cause of apprehension. When I finish "Re-Backing" all my non-system folders and files, I'll visit the Dell site for the most up-to-date drivers supporting the new installation. Any advice, or anything out of the ordinary I should be alert for in the area of Bios update?
Thanks, also, for recognizing what I neglected to include in my request: the fact that I was seeking info/help for a Dell XPS.
