My mom just bought a Dell Inspiron 537 and wants me to install XP on it. My only concern is I don't know what the motherboard is in the tower (it is coming soon but I rather prepare early) and so I have really no idea what type of drivers I should be using. I did download the chipset driver update from Dell and the only files I see with AHCI or SATA in the name are: ichaahci I'm not even sure whether or not JMicron ports are involved. Would it be a safe move to integrate all the 32 bit drivers? Or is there a better way for me to figure out what textmode driver I need?
