Windows XP 32bit drivers for Dell Studio XPS 435MT

We just recieved a couple of new computers today, shiny new Dell Studio XPS 435MT boxes. As everyone here still runs XP 32bit I decided to reinstall the new computers with the same OS, so we didn’t run into any compatability problems. The problem is Dell doesn’t support any other operating systems on these computers other than Vista 64bit!

After searching around the internet for a couple of hours I found the drivers needed, they are as follows:

Network (Intel 82567):*%20XP%20Professional&lang=eng

Chipset (Intel X58):*+XP+Professional&lang=eng&strOSs=44&submit=Go!

Graphics (ATI Radeon 4850):

Audio (Realtek HD Audio):

I hope this helps anyone with a similar problem

    Thanks- you now need to look for Intel 82567, in their list on the left of that page, under network/ethernet controllers.
    Good work — very helpful

    Great links, thanks. We recently had a problem with the Dell XPS435mt our daughter gave us. It kept quitting 10-15 minutes after startup. This problem turned out to the OEM SATA hard drive. I removed it and replaced it with a 250 GB drive, however this immediately presented the problem of what to do next. I wanted to install 32 bit Vista Home Premium and through your post I was able to locate a 32 bit ethernet driver for Vista, which I’m hoping will work when I get a chance to install it this weekend.

    By the way, I did install Puppy Linux 5.4.3 to the new drive last weekend, because I hadn’t found a driver last then for the ethernet card, and it works out of the box without having to go searching for drivers. Thanks again for your post.
