Question 32 bit drivers for my Dell inspiron 15R

I will get my dell 15R this week ...i3-370m+5470 (512mb) +320gb HD
Have a doubt ..I am planning to install win xp 32bit and win 7 32 bit... but in download section dell site shows only win 7 64bit & vista 64 bit drivers for gfx and chipset....I need 32 bit drivers for 5470 and chipset ..is it possible? please help

checked amd site
Graphics Drivers & Software
it shows this for mobility 5xxx series---> The display driver supplied by the laptop manufacturer is customized for the built-in flat panel display, and the graphics features and functions specific to the laptop. It is strongly recommended to use the supplied drivers.

If installing a different operating system other than the one included with the laptop, the laptop may not meet all the requirements, and supported drivers may not be available.

The laptop manufacturer is the exclusive provider of driver updates. If the required driver update is not available at the laptop manufacturers’ website, it is recommended to contact the manufacturer directly, to see if an updated driver will be made available in the future.

AMD cannot provide driver updates directly from AMD.com.

My System Specs


I just went through this with an Inspiron 6400 that a friend was given without a HDD.

I knew that it had at very minimum Intel 945G and possibly a Radeon X1400 GPU, either of which is Aero capable, but Win7ult didn't find any drivers and displayed in default VGA mode.

Of course the Dell site wanted me to use some hokey driver downloader which didn't work.

I simply went to the AMD site and downloaded the Win7 Catalyst driver for the X1300/X1300 series from the legacy Catalyst driver section. It immediately found the X1300 onboard and corrected the resolution and enabled Aero without even a reboot.

I'm sure you can find the rest of your drivers by going to the Dell site to find out what devices there are and going to the device manufacturers' sites for the latest drivers.
