After installing XP professional pro with customized install CD(adding SATA storage driver), windows update never sucess.

Search in Internet for long time and can find a solution for my case.

Install XP on Insprion 1720

1. Get nLite - it lets you copy your XP cd to a local drive, and slipstream drivers into it, then make a new ISO and burn it.
At the very minimum you'll need to put the SATA HD drivers in there. I got them from Dell, at and looked up the Inspiron 1720 Notebook - make sure you set the OS to XP.

2. After installation, the following errors

Windows Cannot load the Internet Configuration Library
(ICFGNT.dll) The following error occured
The specified module could not be found.

to fix it:
1. Copy icfgnt5.dll from other compuer to windows\system32
2. Remove IE then reinstall it. (Control Panel:Add Or Remove programs)
