If u can provide me the drivers for XP for Dell Inspiron1525 T5550 amchine...
Dell should have the drivers on their website. If not then they wont have XP Drivers available. Dell is proprietary and there wont be any drivers out there than the ones Dell provides. You might get lucky with a couple but not for the whole system.
Dell does not list or provide Insprion 1525 drivers for XP because they only pre-load Vista on there (now) and do not allow you to select XP as a valid OS when you select it on thier drivers website.
I had the same problem myself when I loaded XP on my own Insprion 1525.
Solution - Search for your hardware at support.dell.com to find drivers for it for XP (It may be listed under a different model, but it well work as long as it is the same hardware/OS)
For example, I went to Insprion 1501 and selected XP as the OS to download XP audio and wireless drivers. If you don't want to search through the different models to find the correct drivers, you could type in the hardware in a search (ex. Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN MiniCard) and pull up driver download pages from the results.
UPDATE: I went to check for newer drivers for my laptop today. It appears as if Dell is now offering XP as a valid OS in the list under Insprion 1525! You should just be able to download the XP drivers. That should work with Win Server 2003. Here's a direct link to Insprion 1525 w/ XP selected:
