Not sure why you want to do that but I can only assume that you will first of all, have to perform a clean install of the OS if you want go to a 32bit version of Windows 7 or XP. That being said, Windows should install the necessary drivers. All you need to do is get the drivers form the source. Windows should find most of what you need, but the chipset drivers can be found at Intel.com and then you should know the rest of the hardware...and where to find them. Intel or Nvidia or ATI for graphics depending on how you configured the laptop. Anytime you are installing an OS that isn't listed on Dell's site, just go to each part manufacturer's webpage to find the drivers you need. For example, if you have an Intel Wireless card, go to Intel.com and download the drivers for the model you have. This is the link for the Dell drivers for "Any Windows"
This has some good info regarding how to setup http://en.kioskea.net/forum/affich-39539...

Of course these are just my 2cents and I hope that this gets you at least started. Good luck.
