    Hey,

    Currently I am running Windows 7 on this PC. I don't like it that much. I am wanting to install Windows XP on this - I'm wondering if I'll be able to do that? I know on the Dell site it says it supports Windows 7/Vista, and there is not option for XP.

    I know it's possible to install it, but if I did; Where would I get the correct drivers?

    Thanks

    That means there are no XP Drivers available for it. The major driver would be the Chipset driver. If there is no XP Driver for it, you would lose a lot of functionality.

    It would be a foolish move even if you could do it.
    Win7 is a far superior OS, faster and more secure with more features. The support cycle for XP is expiring soon any way.
    Check out some of the tweaking sites and liver with it a while and you'll get used to it.
