RE: Dell Optiplex 9020 Windows XP 32bit Drivers

Our laboratory software requires windows XP 32 bit, so I need to find drivers for this OS for this model.  I have had no luck so far, can anyone point me in the right direction

What laboratory software are you running?

I've had quite a bit of success running scientific instruments designed for Windows XP or earlier on Windows 7:

It would probably be more advisable for you to try and get the software to work on Windows 7 32 bit as Windows XP reaches its End of Life in less than 6 months.

It looks like there are Intel and Broadcom Ethernet adapters for this model.

Please tell me the hardware IDs of any unknown devices in the device manager.

Edit: Sorry from the hardware ID it is the one:

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_153A&SUBSYS_05A41028&REV_4

Intel - Network - Intel(R) Ethernet Connection I217-LM

It looks like there is no XP driver for it but you can maybe try installation of the Windows 7 32 Bit via device manager:
