Installing XP on a Dell Inspiron 1520 is easy! Tags: Download Drivers Windows XP Laptops Last response: August 14, 2009 1:46 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share krazynutz August 2, 2007 7:05:53 PM 1. Switch the SATA mode in the BIOS to ATA 2. Get XP drivers from the Inspiron support driver download section. Get the Intel ABG/AGN WiFi, Sigmatel Sound, and 8600GT XP drivers from the Vostro 1500 download section. 3. Don't install Dell webcam drivers. Generic XP drivers work better AND won't crash with Skype. Just made the change and everything works better and faster! Enjoy! And if you like the look of Vista, download Vista Transformation Pack 7 for XP. Pretty cool http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/OS-Enhancements/Vista-Transformation-Pack.shtml More about : installing dell inspiron 1520 easy TheGreatGrapeApe August 2, 2007 8:50:33 PM Sweet!
