Help with Vista to XP - 02-18-2009, 06:31 AM
Hi, I am looking to upgrade my OS by replacing Vista with XP on my mini12. I had a couple questions...is this what should be done?
1) plug in external dvd drive with xp pro or home
2) in bios select the boot device (the dvd drive)
3) install xp pro or home
4) boot up in whatever mode it is when you have bare minimum drivers etc (in other words i will be seeing the desktop even though in very basic resolution)
5) then download drivers and install from here (http://support.dell.com/support/downloa ... WW1&osl=EN)
My question comes from installing the drivers. Will I be able to install the drivers if I saved them all to a USB? or do I have to burn them onto a CD? SHould I download and install all the drivers?
thanks and which would be best XP home or pro?
