Downgrade a Vista32 to a WIN XP Pro on Studio 1735 ?

I would like to install a fresh XP Pro on a laptop Studio 1735.

I have an original XP Pro CD.

 

Possible to make a dual-boot from Vista to XP ?

Or better to clean up all Vista and build a clean XP ?

 

Thanks for experience return.

Hi

There are no XP drivers for your computer so it may not even work for XP !

Unless you can find them some other way Dell does offer them !!

Good Luck

Here are Xp drivers for the 1536 model, they should work for the 1735, the hardware is the same.

Edit, the ATi chipset and Raid drivers in this download won't work, the 1736 uses Intel, sorry, I will try to round up the Intel drivers.
