Default Problems installing XP? - 07-15-2009, 09:09 PM

I managed to install XP on my mini using the following instructions:

Install Windows XP using USB Flash Disk/ Flash Drive - Step by Step Guide

However, the display is limited to a max resolution of 800x600, and it can't find any of the hardware - no network connections, no nothing. How do I 'fix' my XP install?

Note that my mini came with Ubuntu only, so I don't have any recovery media or anything. I couldn't find the drivers on Dell's site, and the site's that did advertise drivers seemed less than trustworthy.

EDIT: Nevermind, I think I found the drivers on Dell's site after all. Not sure why it wasn't showing up before - probably user error.
