Hi, I have an inspiron 1520 which is still going strong. It's time to re-install Windows. I would like to install Win 7 or Win 8. Has anyone with an Inspiron 1520 successfully installed Win 7 or Win 8? Or is there a Dell tech maven who knows the answer to this question?
If it is possible, any advice based on practical experience about getting specific drivers needed would be much appreciated.
Welcome to the Community. Yes I have seen a couple of posts from customers on the Dell Community Forums, who have loaded Windows 8 on the Inspiron 1520, and it worked with Windows Native Drivers. The Dell support Site does not have drivers for windows 7, and windows 8 for this system, however you can download the Vista drivers and run the driver using compatibility mode, which should work.
