  1. I have a Dell Optiplex GX 620 System that came with Win XP PRO SP2.

    I want to install Vista ( Ultimate ) 32 bit

    Which drivers do I need & where can I get them ?

    Do I need new BIOS ?

    I am not a techy but

    Dell says that Vista will not work on this machine which is strange.

    Machine Specs are :

    Intel Pentium D 3.0 GHz Dual core Processor

    2.0 GB DDR RAM

    250 GB HDD

    256 MB ATI Radion X600 Video Card capable of running two monitors

    Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx Gigabit Controller

    Conexant D860 56K V.9x DFVc Modem

    SoundMax Integrated Digital Audio

    NEC DVD+RW ND-3530A

    SONY DVD-ROM DDU1615

    Please can someone give me a step by step as to how do I install the drivers too.

    Thank You in Advance.
