My two systems that I am working with do not have floppies. Go do the dual boot and tell it to point to the drive that has the xp pro on it.
Being that it already has sata drivers will it work.
Does anyone know where can I find a SATA driver that can work with my Dell Studio 1555, 64 bits. NOTE: Keep this disk in a safe place, as it will be need to use in the Recovery Console. Please can anyone tell me so what to do if i want to do with laptop and sure no floppy 32 Quote: Originally Posted by Maggid7 Hello NOTE: Keep this disk in a safe place, as it will be need to use in the Recovery Console.

Quick question, will a USB external floppy drive work for this or does it have to be internal.
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.
There was a response from another MEMBER stating that the 1558 Bios would not allow Windows XP install. I am debating flashing my Studio 1558 with the 1555 bios if that is even possible.
As I stated the 1555 has the exact same hardware options as my 1558, but I have never messed with bios before and am a little leary.
