Network drivers for dell optiplex 760.

Hi all, my machine wouldnt let me install XP after i'd installed Fedora on it so i changed the BIOS settings to Legacy from AHCI. I installed Xp properly and i went back and changed the BIOS settings to ATA. I tried to install network drivers but each time i do this, my search never finds the drivers yet am sure i downloaded the correct drivers from the DELL website. I went back and tried to change the BIOS settings to AHCI but instead the machine does not boot, it restarts and goes to that screen of booting in safe mode, please help me cause i need it be on our network. thank you.

Try Flashing the BIOS with the latest available not the old one and if you can get into the BIOS you can do anything with the System so keep looking for solutions.
