Installing Windows XP Pro on a Vista system (i1720)

Jump to solution

Hay all!

I searched for this topic, and didn't come up with what I was looking for, so before I go out and buy...

I want to "fire" Vista, and install the Pro version of XP.  I then want to "kick vista out" of my system.  Is this possible for an Inspiron 1720?

 

Erik.

Hi Erik

The XP drivers are here http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?os=WW1&catid=-1&dateid=-1&impid=-1&osl=EN... so there should not be a problem with XP on your 1720 .

Good Luck
