All you need to do is get the drivers form the source. I just installed Windows 7 x64 Home Premium on one of these laptops last week. Windows 7 finds 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. People make this out to be a challenge, but it's actually very simple.

Go to Dell and look up your computer to find your hardware.

There's no website I can give you, unfortunately. You know what hardware is in the laptop, so you'll know what you need. Look at the example, I gave. Let's say it has an Intel chipset, Intel graphics, and Intel wireless. That's three of your primary drivers from one site. Just take a look at your specs, and you'll know where to go for them.

Have you tried any Vista 32bit drivers for your win7 32 bit ?

Yes, win7 can use a lot of Vista drivers, may have to run in compatability mode.

That would work, but I'd only use it as a last resort. I think you are making this out to be a MUCH larger ordeal than it really is. You definitely want to have your chipset and network drivers saved to a flash drive or somewhere like it right away. Then you can at least get online and let Window Update run to find some of the drivers as well. Honestly, this takes about 10 minutes to gather all the drivers and be ready to install Windows 7. Relax and take a deep breath. You'll be laughing when it is done at how simple it was.
