How do I upgrade a dell laptop from XP to windows 7
Posted on 2014-08-15
I’m trying to upgrade a Dell Inspiron 6000 from windows XP to Windows 7.
My problem is when I ran the upgrade advisor its telling me that the Mobile Intel(R) 915GM/GMS,910GML Express Chipset Family
Is not compatible. I’ve tried the intel website and they have no driver updates for windows 7. I have been in touch with dell support and given them the machines unique number and they say that this machine is not capable of upgrading from windows xp. I have already purchased the windows 7 so before I proceed I could really do with some answers to the following questions.
1. Is this possible to do?
2. Where can I get the drivers?
3. What issues can I expect if I go ahead without updated drivers?
If anybody else has come across this problem and has resolved it I would really appreciate their help.
