I have looked at the chipset files on my Dell drivers and downloads CD, but I m not sure what files to put on the floppy. they came with a windows7 computer would they work with a windows XP install. My Dell laptop is a Studo 1558, but hardware listed in the 1555 is the same.
I have never done a dual boot but am not a total virgin to hardware and software.
Just really do not want to have to load the windows 7 all over again as I have it running pretty good with a ton of adobe software.
Thanks 22 Floppy Drive When you refer to a Floppy Drive in this tutorial, I assume you are also including CD optical drive. Ron Harries OS Windows 7 Professional 24 Is there no way around using a floppy drive.
The requirement makes it impossible to install a windows dual boot on a laptop.
