    i dont understand when u say that i can not install 2 os one hard drive. before this i had installed xp and win 2000 on my pc in one hdd.

    I also want to know that is it possible that i format my entire c and d drive( C is where os is , D is recovery) , then install xp first and then install vista, coz this is the method i did earlier when i installed xp on a pc with win 2000

You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model laptop, better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop. This will open the page where the specific drivers for your model laptop are located. Also make sure you select the Windows XP or Vista version of the driver for your Windows operating system.

I have dell 1537 n and i cant install windows xp im dont understand how to change sata option on bios please explain that to me because im in dire need for that


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.
