"Tags:FP67YN1"

I'm assuming FP67YN1 is the correct Service Tag for your model, like found here:
http://support.dell.com/support/top...


Go here:
http://support.dell.com/support/ind...


Drivers and Downloads

Click on Enter a tag - type FP67YN1

(If you have looked up a different Dell model previously, a Drivers and Downloads page for a different model than your present one will automatically appear - choose Change Your Product - click on Enter a tag - type FP67YN1 )

Your Current Product Selection Is:

Product Model:
Inspiron Mini 10 (1018)
Service Tag:
FP67YN1

http://support.dell.com/support/dow...
........

Your specific model your Service tag refers to never came with any older operating system than Windows 7 on it.

Open up the selections on the page, and copy down the hardware devices the drivers are for, then search the web for the drivers for XP for them.

The main chipset drivers are available on the Intel web site - you MUST install those for the main chipset and for most of the devices on your mboard associated with the main chipset to be recognized properly.

HOWEVER, your biggest problem is going to be the monitor drivers for the built in display on laptops and netbooks are embedded in the video drivers for the integrated video in the main chipset - Intel will tell you you need to get the video drivers from the manufacturer of your laptop's or netbook's web site for your specific model
You must search the web for the video drivers for a similar Dell model with the same size of display that uses the same main chipset that has drivers for XP, or search the Dell web site for that.

Try searching the web for something such as:
Inspiron Mini 10 XP drivers
DO NOT USE your FP67YN1 service tag !

Apparently there are several Mini 10 models.
ALL the Mini 10 (1018) models came ONLY with the Windows 7 32 bit operating system, but other Mini 10 models DO have Win XP drivers available for them.

Try this....

Copy down the hardware devices for your model , as I said above.

Go here:
http://support.dell.com/support/ind...


Drivers and Downloads

Click on Select Model

(If a Drivers and Downloads page for Mini 10 (1018), or some other Dell model, automatically appears - choose Change Your Product - click on Select Model)


Laptops
Inspiron laptops
Mini 10 (1012)

Select Windows XP - click on Search for Downloads.

Open up the selections and compare the hardware devices to the ones for your model.

If they're the same, you can use the drivers for Mini 10 (1012) for your Mini 10 (1018).

NOTE that there may be some drivers listed for XP that are built into Windows 7, so there may be more drivers for XP

DO NOT use the bios update for Mini 10 (1012) for your Mini 10 (1018) !! If you DO, your computer MAY NOT BOOT after you have flashed the bios !
