Thanks but I am now totally lost. Have installed 7-Zip but this is what I get when extracting the EXE file I downloaded from your link.

How on earth can I slipstream these into the install file. They don't even look like files! I use nLite .

That's jzip. This is what it looks like in 7zip,

Dell said I needed Intel drivers
If it is the computer in your specs, Dell really are idiots then as no way you can use Intel drivers with an AMD system

Yes I know the trouble is you cannot install 7Zip. If you start the install you get to this screen and as I don't want free TV I can get no further other than Quit the install!

Downloaded the exe file but keep getting the message "can't find amd_sata.sys file so have given up and installed XP on my VM which really does what I need. Thanks for all the help!
