Inspiron 1750 - Windows XP

First thing is follow my wiki Update your XP CD to SP3, WMP11 and IE8 and slipstream the Intel Matrix Storage manager R197861 SATA drivers to the new XP CD.

Next download the following drivers and save them to a USB stick. These are unofficial and taken some other models as Dell does not support XP on this model. They should all work, post back what ones work and what ones fail.

Install Windows XP as per my wiki A Clean Install of Windows XP (get rid of the Vista and 7 partitions and just have Windows XP).

Note it may not have a modem, if the first driver in 7. fails then ignore the rest in 7. Note bluetooth 365 was optional and so if this fails you don't have bluettoh. There are 3 wireless card variants, one driver should install and the other 2 should fail.
