I'll get my Mini 9 on Monday and will likely do a clean XP install.
That's what I always did with my new computers, but with the Mini, 9, there are still some questions where I hope you can help me:
1. In which order should I install the drivers? Chipset first, I guess. But then?
2. Which Dell tools that are included in their original configuration should I install as well, that everything works properly? Something special for Bluetooth/Wlan? That Dell webchat software for the webcam? Dell Support tool?
3. Something I was wondering: everything I want to install on the Mini has to be transferred via USB, no matter if it's a memory stick or an external DVD drive. So I have to actually plug in something in the USB port before installing the chipset driver. Could that cause any trouble?
And: I know that I could create a nlite installation, but I'd like to avoid that, to be honest.
