    Just incase I provided the wrong links people can doubelcheck versions & compatabilities, last thing i want is me screwing up someones Xp installation!

    Many say the 1330 XP drivers work fine with the 1530 as they are the same hardware with the exception of the PCMCIA card that does not come with the 1330

    This Guide on Dell Community is very helpful
    **IMPORTANT**
    Some in dell-community forums have said that you MUST leave bluetooth enabled BEFORE you format to XP otherwise you cannot turn it on. Mine is off, however i do not have any bluetooth devices to test!

    Dec.12 - 4PM - MST Attempting above XP Installation:
    Stage1 - Format OS Partition - COMPLETE

    ** GOT QUICKSET TO WORK WITH XP & M1530**
    I got Curious as to why i could not install quckset. So i went searching, and read this int he Readme.txt File.

    I just used the Latitude D830 R165094.EXE that someone mentioned however i am sure it would work with the m1330 driver.

    Quickset For m1330 XP driver http://ftp.us.dell.com/app/R163012.EXE

    Basically this will skip all checks windows version does & install it anyways behind everything.

    For Advanced Users Only:
    ------------------------

    Silent Install Option

    QuickSet is installed via an InstallShield installation program and thus has the ability to be "silently" installed through the "-S" command-line switch. QuickSet includes an .ISS file in the distribution package for customers who wish to perform silent installs. Example: "SETUP.EXE -S".

    Custom Installation

    QuickSet can be installed with a subset of features by choosing the "Custom" Setup type and then selecting only those features you require. For silent installation, a custom .ISS can be generated by using the "-R" command-line switch. This option will launch Setup, allow you to choose your preferred installation options, and will store your selections in a new SETUP.ISS, created inside the system's Windows folder. You may then replace the SETUP.ISS file included with the distribution package with the new customized version and use it to repeat that installation on other machines. Example: "SETUP.EXE -R".

    I just finished updating all the drivers & utilities for Dell XPS M1530 for Microsoft Windows Vista 32-Bit (All Versions). Every link, driver and utility is verified, tested and working. Copy and paste the links in your favorite download manager and your drivers & utilities are ready for installation at one shot.

    I spent about a full day of trial and error and testing drivers out there until I got things working right on a brand new XPS m1530. Some XP Drivers from the XPS m1330 did not work right so I had to hunt for the right drivers. I can now say I have successfully installed Windows XP SP2 on the m1530.

    Unfortunatelly I did not keep track of the urls where I found the drivers but I did save all the necessary drivers for it. The drivers and related programs that work with them total about 180mb.

    The System:
    Intel® Core™ 2 Duo Processor T7500 (2.2GHz/800Mhz FSB, 4MB Cache)
    Genuine Windows® Vista Home Premium Edition
    Glossy, widescreen 15.4 inch LCD (1280x800) & 2.0 MP Camera
    2GB Shared Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 667MHz (2 Dimms)
    200GB 7200rpm SATA Hard Drive
    Slot Load DVD+/-RW (DVD/CD read/write)
    256MB NVIDIA® GeForce® 8600M GT
    Intel Next-Gen Wireless-N Mini-card

    Despite of the good processor and memory I noticed Vista was in fact slowing things down so almost immediately I "upgraded" to XP.

    After I installed XP things just got super fast. Audio and Video run perfect.
    I also tested the video card with Bioshock, running at high settings - it looked amazing and worked perfectly. The DirectX10 option on the actual game however was disabled.

    I would recommend this laptop to anyone, it is just an amazing great looking system. If you need help installing XP SP2 on your new m1530 send me an email.

    2 things were untested though:
    - HDMI port
    - S-Video Out

    The Wi-Fi catcher seems to work fine too, although to be honest I am not sure if it really is working 100% right. The button turns blue and sometimes orange... whatever that means. I probably won't be using that anyways.
    The remote that came with it and all the playback, sound and media direct buttons also worked 100%.

    Any emails or comments about this post are welcome.
    Good luck to all and happy Holidays.

    Do I need to install all of these drivers (for vista) rather than using the driver disk dell provides or are these basically whats on the disk itself?
