Driver problems

7 posts in this topic

So I'm trying to install Windows XP from USB. I get to the point where it checks my C drive and says it can't find anything or something to that effect. I have been reading online that I need the sata drivers in the install ISL. When I attempt to put them in using nlite this is what shows. ac89955713ba6f355853c67894edd0aa.png?1363027037

Which is not a driver for Dell Optiplex 755. My service tag is:544jyf1

Got my drivers from here http://www.dell.com/support/troubleshooting/us/en/19/servicetag/544jyf1?s=BIZ

Any help would be great. Thanks.

According to this http://www.dell.com/downloads/global/products/optix/en/opti_755_techspecs.pdf , all 4 versions use Intel® Q35 Express Chipset (ICH9DO), so it's probably one of the last two. It's probably the last, but I can't say it for sure.

You might want to wait around for another answer.

Cheers

Thanks. Will give this a try. Can't hurt. Will post back if it does or doesn't work.

I'd say the last one if you're using ahci mode in the bios, the one before if you're using raid ahci, no driver needed if you're using ata mode.

Worked like a charm. Now my problem is I can't connect to the internet on that computer. I have been looking online I think maybe my Ethernet driver is not working. I went to device manager and Ethernet is in the unknown category. Also tried the first driver on dell website and no love.

Can you post the Hardware IDs? You can find them by double-clicking the Unknown, selecting the Details tab, and choosing Hardware IDs from the drop-down menu. The first (and the second maybe) will do fine.

I got it sorted out now. Thanks for all of your help. Got the great Windows XP running on my desktop now problem-less.
