Re: driver fails on windows start up

Windows 7 Pro and Windows 7 Ultimate have XP mode.

You have not provided basic information and therefore any response would be purely a guess at best.

Dell Model Number?

Windows OS version?

Service Pack 1,2,3?

What is the Exact Error message?

X64 versions of windows will REFUSE to allow unsigned drivers to install.
