  1. You didn't provide the model number of your Studio XPS laptop.
  2. hi its a dell studio xps 1645 laptop
  3. There are no XP drivers available on the Dell Support site.


    It would probably be better for you to try a dual boot Win7/XP option.

    The EasyBCD program listed in this How-To article will let you set the Win7 or XP partition as first/default boot option.
    -> How to dual boot Vista and XP (with Vista installed first) -- the step-by-step guide with screenshots
    The instructions work fine for Win7/XP dual boot setups.
    An option for disk partition besides the Gparted mentioned in the article is Easeus Partition Master Home Edition

    It might be hard to find good drivers for the new laptop hardware. Your best bet is to go with a slipstreamed XP SP3 installation.
    Slipstreaming Windows XP with Service Pack 3
  4. would the drivers for an ordinary xps dell laptop ..work with my laptop.


    dell has drivers on its site for the dell xps laptop

    woud they work with mine?
