I wiped my Hard Drive on my dell 1501. When I tried to reinstall windows it goes so far and ask to install drivers? I have the disk for the driver, but can not get it to install.

Hi and Welcome to TSF!

I would try to copy your drivers onto a USB flash drive. Then ask Windows to install the drivers from the flash drive.

Is the driver now on the USB?

If so go to select driver and then tell Windows to look at your USB drive.

If you have the Dell System restore ( not all Dells do ) you can use that and you will not need a install CD . . however, if you wiped the drive, you would have eliminated this option.

If not, You can get a reinstallation guide specific to your Dell here ( You will have to change the operating system to match yours.
