    I would assume that you can upgrade it, but you'll probably have to request the disc from dell and reinstall it. The only part that I'm not sure about is if you have MD on your system now and install the new one, if you have to delete the old one first. If you really want to do this, I would recommend using Norton Ghost to make a copy of your HDD, then delete the old MD HPA and reformat because you'll need to leave 1.5gb of space to install the need MD.

    That's just my theory on it.

    I sent Dell an e mail about it. I have had my E1505 for all of three weeks and asked them if it were possible to acquire an upgrade disk. As soon as I hear anything, I'll post the response...

    I chatted with them before and they said there wasnt any upgrades availible yet, hopefully they will release it for upgrade.

    Has there been a situation like this before?
