You have to get in Bios. you will find HDD section. it must be IDE/AHCI section. you need to do IDE if you want to install XP. XP doesnt regognize AHCI SATA drives.

I get a weird message when I try to boot up my computer. it is


Sounds like a failed windows update crashed the operating system. If Vista, boot to the Vista DVD, select the option to repair your computer and see if that will resolve, repeat running the repair process until it reports no errors.
If windows XP, boot to XP CD, press R at 1st prompt, run CHKDSK /R and see if that fixes the boot process.
If those fail, then you might have some luck with a repair of your Windows Installation from the Windows CD

When I start dell 1525 it say bad windows image.


Sounds like a corrupt windows install. Boot to the Diagnostics (Fn+Power button) and see if it indicates a hardware failure.
If diags pass, and running Vista, then Boot to Vista DVD and try repair my computer options. If XP, boot to XP CD, R for recovery console and run CHKDSK /R
Most likely you will need to either re-image the drive from the F8 menu for Vista or CTRL+F11 for XP, or if the hard drive is failing replace the hard drive.

Dear Sir, Have Dell laptop Inspiron 1525 with Vista loaded....but I need Win XP-2 OS on it...CD of which I have but don't have the laptop drivers compatible with XP. Can you pls guide me how & where to...


If your laptop is still under warranty, installing WinXP will void the warranty. It's very tricky. I'd suggest getting another PC with Internet connection and search and download drivers as needed for your 1525. Good luck.

HOW TO INSTALL WINDOWS XP ON DELL LAPTOP


go into bios by pressing F2 - change the boot order so the cd / dvd drive is the first bootable device and use the installation / recovery disc you got with it and boot from the cd and re install or install windows xp.

If you do not have the cd then you either need to find it or contact dell and see if they have another one with a key ( which may be chargeable )

Installing xp on inspiron 1525


The reason why xp does not see the hard drive durin setup is the ahci option enabled in the bios. you need to change the option to ata. to do that power on the system and tap f2 at the dell logo. in the bios change the stat operations to ata. the option most likely is listed under drivers. you may also have to disble flash cache from the bios. once the option is disabled hit esc and save and exit. boot from the XP cd and run the setup. at the partations screen delete the c drive and partation it according to the size you need for xp and leave the rest for vista. install XP and the drivers from support.dell.com. After XP is ready to use put in the Vista DVD once in XP and install Vista on the unpartationed space left from the c drive.
