I think this guide does what you are asking.

I think you still might need the swap magic discs if you don't have a modchip. There is also a memory card exploit where you put HD Loader onto a memory card and use a ps1 game to boot it so you don't need a mod. I think its explained in that link.

Dell E1705
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0GHz T7200
2GB DDR2 667MHz
80GB 5400RPM HDD
256MB nVidia 7900 GeForce Go

The HD Loader/HD Advance are not even expensive. You can put a copy of the HD programs on your Memory Card but you still need the Swap magic discs. I can help you out with the software if you need it for cheaper than anyone else.

Let me know.
