Default Win Xp Drivers Needed - 08-03-2011, 12:31 PM

Hi all

Just a simple request really.

I recently been trying out differnt os on my mini. so far I will have to say Mac os x Snow Leopard, seems to be running the best even though there is no wifi or hardware acceleration.

I will like to try out windows xp, but can not seem to locate any drivers.

I have searched the forums, did come across a link but the file has been deleted, so if somebody does have the windows xp drivers, can they be kind enough to upload them

Thank You

you can get them right off the Dell site, as a matter of fact many of the XP drivers will work with Windows 7 also

BTW: if the drivers don't show up under your model (1018) might only show you drivers for Win 7 as where the 1018 didn't come with XP, try changing your system type to a 1010 and use those drivers
