One thought on “XPS 730 – Windows 7 and 8.1 64 Bit

  1. Is this valid for 730X? The dell Chris guy said 1.06 bios isn’t valid for 730x. But it shows as shipping on the last machines from dell but never added to the website according to the wiki page as well as the xpsuser site that shows how to upgrade to the Alienware bios a10, a11b. Can anyone confirm its ok for 730x as well as the rest of the drivers included here?
