I am looking at the possibility of doing this to my Dell Inspiron 1520 laptop - which came with Windows XP installed - for the exact same reason. I'm not sure I even received a Windows XP boot disk from Dell, and even if I did, it's been 4 years and two moves ago, so darned if I have any clue where it might be. Is there any way to do a re-install of Windows XP without the original disk?
