Of course you can. What's more, install Windows 7 for x86 and then apply almost all the drivers from the Vista Drivers' CD, except the Video Drivers, which must be taken from the intel page --> gm965 graphic drivers for Windows 7-RC.

It runs like a rocket, very very fast, it surprised me.

Where to buy upgrade for Inspiron 1525?

I am finding it difficult to get to buy an upgrade for my Vista home basic based Inspiron 1525.

If I buy the licence from anywehere else and try to install it on Inspiron 1525, will it work? Or do I have to buy it from Dell itself??

I am still wondering what to do....

Mine does quite nicely. 32bit if you aren't going to buy ram

I just installed the 64 bit, dell input driver r244796, on the Dell Inspiron 1525, and the scrolling does work. This should work for 64bit Vista or Windows 7. Here's the link for the download....
