Thread: Dell D830 running XP Pro 64 Bit

  1. #1

    Thumbs up Dell D830 running XP Pro 64 Bit

    For anyone looking for an alternative to upgrading to Win 7

    I have XP 64 bit running fine on my D830. ( Although NOT officially supported by DELL )

    4Gb Ram -- VLK & SP 2 plus ALL device drivers installed and working 100% including ACHI SATA.
    64 bit themes available and running 64bit Firefox.
    MS Update works fine as well.

    Stable and FAST

    Very happy

    I love XP 64-bit. The only problems I have encountered are driver support (for 3G and some wireless network cards), and a few applications like Nero which require a different license.

    When you pass Go and collect R200, you know you're playing Monopoly. When you pass Go and have to pay R200... you know you're in Gauteng!

    If you scratch around on the DELL Drivers page especially for VISTA 64 bit you will find a lot of stuff that can be used.

    My INTEL WiFi card is working fine with the native DELL drivers.

    Running Google Eath fine -- strangely my GPU is reporting 512Mb memory.

    With the latest BIOS upgrade you can run EIGHT Gb memory on the D830

    Will get to the other application bridges when I need to cross them.
    I assume that with MS 7 there are going to be a lot more applications upgraded to 64 bit.

    At the moment running GE I need more and faster bandwidth and an upgrade to a "Draft-n" Wireless access point.

    Was talking about driver support in general. I know Atheros chipsets have poor support.
