As I wrote above, you'll be bypassing Windows search for drivers. You say you can boot into Windows, so if you can get that far you can plug in a flash drive and run the executable driver installers from there.

If you don't know the BIOS password, that's a problem. There are some posts in the forum about web sites that claim to be able to generate a BIOS password based on the Dell service tag, but I'm not sure that they work. That said, if you don't need to change the boot order (I think there may be a key you can press to temporarily change it at boot, but I don't have the model you do), you can leave the BIOS alone.
