32-bit xp driver for dell vostro 3750

dear all,

I've bought a dell vostro 3750 recently and try to install windows xp on it --- since some of my old project need xp. I managed to add SATA/AHCI driver and install xp successfully, but failed to find 32bits xp drivers for many of its hardware, like video card, network, audio card ...

I find someone has faced same problem and solved not long before -- the link is here:
http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/263740-45-windows-dell-computer#t954273
But since the thread is closed, I couldn't add a words there. So I open this new thread, hope someone
who got the entire xp drivers worked for 3750 could share his drivers with me.

That's really help me a lot, and great great thanx to it. :)

  2. Hi Richard, I have managed to install XP/32 on Dell Vostro 3750 with AHCI. I needed to create a nLite XP with "Intel(R) Mobile Express Chipset SATA AHCI Controller" in $OEM$ folder.

    All drivers are working except the NVidia 525M (which is not needed in my case), are mostly from DELL, some from device manufacturers. Unfortunatelly, I did not save the download links, just the driver files, the list is below. I think you need just google for each one and download from one of the first search results. For a limited time, I provide all of them at http://www.sign.sk/pub/Vostro3750/ later today.

    Best regards,

    You are welcome. Yes, it's the Intel HD 3000 driver.

  7. Greetings Brano Sundancer and whoever sees this,

    Windows 7 does not do everything I could do with XP so I would be great-full if it would be possible for Sundancer or another gentle soul could pass on the drivers on. The link "http://www.sign.sk/pub/Vostro3750/" is not working anymore, Sundancer also only claim to provide it for a limited time, so no surprise.

    Give thanks, you are most helpful, were Dell took the easy road.

    The link is available again. I will leave it there as long as possible (until I need the 348MB disk space :) ).
    However, the drivers packages (from Dell and Intel) are easily to be found via Google.

    Virtualization is a good workaround, but it does not solve some situation like direct access from XP to the hardware. Some people just need the XP run on "bare metal" because of HW/SW limitation of the application or connected hardware (like me and the medical hardware+software).
