For windows xp to be compatabe with laptops or desktops with sata drives you will need a driver that is written to a floppy disk and inserted during the windows install it will prompt you to hit F6 during the install early on for additional drivers.

I looked on dells' site's support page for your laptop and unfortunately they do not support XP for your model. Even if you installed it none of your video, chipset, webcam, or audio would run correclty. you only have vista and 64 bit vista as an option.

Now this isnt to say you cant their is ways to find and make srivers work, but thats a very hard and time consuming process.

XP will not install "Setup


That is because it was designed for Vista not the obsolete XP. There are no hard drive drivers suitable in XP.
Re install Vista or install Win7.
Hope that helps.

1.FIRST YOU DO ONE THING IF YOU USING XP OS MEANS CHANGE THE SATA MODE TO IDE OTHER WISE CHANGE THE SATA MODE TO AICH.
2.IF BOOT WITH CD MEANS CHANGE BOOT PRIORITY CD/DVD ROM
2.IF YOU BOOT WITH HDD MEANS CHOOSE HDD.
BIOS OPTION----CONTINUOSLY PRESS F2 KEY.
