  2. Hello Everyone, I need an answer to simple question , I'm in a process to implement MDT into my organization , in the organization we have dell latitude laptops that comes with OEM license , From my understanding the OEM license is stored on the bios of the computers. (correct me if I'm wrong) 1) Do I need to use the OEM task sequence in the MDT ? 2) How can I take the OEM license from the laptop bios and use it on the same laptop ? I just want to use the OEM license for the same laptop he comes with it , I know that this is possible but I'm not sure how to do it.
  3. I'm trying to install DCIS 4.2 on my computer with System Center Configuration Manager 2012 R2 console installed. The installer runs until it gets to "Importing Custom Dell Reboot Package" and then goes right into "Rolling Back Option". I've tried this on a system with the SCCM Console installed fresh in case there was an issue with the original system's install with the same result. Has anyone run across this? Do I need to upgrade my DCIS version the actual management point server first? Thanks in advance. Ryan
  4. Hello, I've looked on many of forums and I am trying to find a way to enable bitlocker using a task sequence so I don't have to manually do every single laptop separately. I did download and created a package using the Dell CCTK and created a package using the Dell\X86_64 and include all the contents inside. I then add it to the TS and fails. Just dont get why it isnt working and any help would be amazing. Thanks!
  5. Hello, I'm having a problem enabling BitLocker on Windows 10 v1607 during the task sequence for one model laptop: Dell Latitude E5450 -- except that it does work about 10% of the time. I haven't been able to narrow it down to a specific hardware problem and different BIOS update versions and drivers also result in mixed successes (even on the same exactly laptop). Strangely, the E5450 model has worked historically with the Windows 10 LTSB 2015 version and BitLocker. Models in our environment that work 100% off the time (with the same exactly task sequence) include Latitude E6430, E5440,
  6. Hi We are planning a Windows 10 deployment for the not to distant future and I am working on getting a new set of task sequences setup for this, incorporating some of the niggly things we've wanted to do for a long time but haven't had the time or patience. One of those things is setting up the computers BIOS settings to our corporate setup. We are primarily all Dell computers, or varying ages, but the majority will run Dell CCTK commands, which is how we do the settings at the moment post task sequence. I basically followed this article to setup the CCTK part of our task sequence
  7. Hello, Just wondering if anyone has manage to image the Dell XPS 13 9350? Got SCCM 2012 R2 SP1 CU2 and when using my current TS wtih Dell XPS 13 9350 it came to the first reboot (partitioning, apply wim, check drivers, install client etc...) and then fail... acording to this link that is normal for this model if you set disk opertion to AHCI which I had: https://www.reddit.com/r/SCCM/comments/40t2iv/dell_xps_9350_9550_sccm_imaging_guide/ I switched to RAID ON as suggested in the link, and added the Intel RAID driver to my WInPE. I can boot on WinPE, partition the disk but when apply
  8. Published: 2013-06-06 (at www.testlabs.se/blog) Updated: - Version: 1.0 This post will focus on having the technical prerequisites ready and in place for a successful Domino/Notes migration. Before going into any details, if you are planning to do a migration from Domino and want to use Dell Software’s Notes Migrator for Exchange, it is important to mention that there is a requirement from the vendor to use certified people for the project. If you would like to read the other parts: Part 1: Migrations – Overview Migration Accounts I recommend using three accounts, one with Domino pe
  9. NOTE: Cross posted to Technet Forums I have used the Dell Client Integration Pack to import warranty data into SCCM. I imported their Warranty report which gives me information on all Dell systems in the database. How can I go about limiting this report to return data only from a specific collection? SELECT v_GS_COMPUTER_SYSTEM.Name0 AS Name, DellWarrantyInformation.Service_Tag AS [serial Number], DellWarrantyInformation.Build, DellWarrantyInformation.Region, DellWarrantyInformation.LOB AS [Line of Business], DellWarrantyInformation.System_Model AS [system Model],
  10. Afternoon, Recently, I have noticed that some our machines are not consistantly joining the domain as part of the task sequence. I find the issue is very strange, for example the same laptop can take multiple attempts before finally going through and completing the task sequence. The issue occurs with different laptop/desktop manufacturers and models. It also occurs with machines that have previously been sucessful through the task sequence. Our setup has been in place for 18 months and the task sequence has not been altered. The boot image has also not been altered and the correct net
  11. Hey all! I'm calling out for anyone who's had issues installing drivers on an Optiplex 7010 through SCCM. I have taken the task of getting SCCM to work within our local hospital and I've managed to get the Optiplex 780 and 790 to deploy correctly with no issue whatsoever. However, when I follow the exact process for the Optiplex 7010 the task sequence will fail once it is required to gain access to our software source and install all of the applications specified in the TS. On further inspection within the logs it's clear to see that the Ethernet driver has not installed at all which resu
  12. I have a question for you guys. Have any of you guys used sccm to image the Dell 7440 Ultrabooks with 16gb of ram in them? We have two models here, an 8gb model and a 16gb model. The 8gb ones image perfectly fine, the 16's fail out in great fashion. The 16's even install windows minus components... I'm just wondering if anyone has run into this. I tried to find logs, but there aren't any. When the image fails it fails with no log of anything happening.
  13. I've been looking into finding a way to pull the warranty info of our pc's into SCCM. I found the Dell Client Integration Pack but don't know much about it. Does it work as it is advertised? Any gotcha's I need to know about before installing it on our SCCM server? Any tips? Does it actually pull the warranty of every Dell device and show in SCCM or some report? Sorry for so many questions, just don't know anything about it yet but it sounds like it could save me a bunch of time each year trying to provide replacement numbers to management.
  14. Hi All, I've created a reference image (windows 7 x64) a few months ago. This reference image also contains a few applications like Office 2013, Silverlight... I've been using this reference image for a few months now. I've installed it on several types of Dell clients and everything works fine. Last week, I received a new type of laptop (Dell Latitude E6540). I added the new drivers to the task sequence (apply driver package method) and started the installation. This went well, the task sequence finished without errors. I started the laptop and at first sight, everything looke
  15. Hello! I have been having an issue trying to get the correct storage drivers for a Dell T7400. I have used the Dell WinPE driver packs and the drivers that are listed on the Dell website. Has anyone been able to successfully pxe deploy this model? Every driver I have tried so far does not enable the hard drive to be seen in WinPE. I also have a T7500 and T7600 that is similar hardware that works. Could all the different versions of the drivers I have included conflict with each other? Any help would be appreciated.
  16. Hello All, I'm trying to image a Dell Precision M6800. It PXE boots and pulls the boot wim fine but once it gets into the task sequence area it will just reboot. I can't seem to pull an IP address to it at all but it PXE boots fine. This is the only laptop that does this. Even the previous M6700 will boot via PXE and is able to image. I also have booted into all other Dell Machines fine. This is the first M6800 and its not letting me imagine it. I can't seem to figure out what is wrong. Is any one else having this problem with other computers? smsts.log
  17. This will be a collection of posts, regarding migrations in general in the first post will digging deeper in the following posts. Published: 2013-05-09 (on www.testlabs.se/blog) Updated: 2013-05-15 Version: 1.1 Thanks for the great input and feedback: Hakim Taoussi and Magnus Göransson Part 1: Overview I will try to keep the first post not technical since this is more common sense then anything else. In short I want to summarize some key takeaways and recommendation to stick with, explaining them a bit more in detail below. Planning Information & communication Pilot migra
  18. Hello, I have a ~8 mb bootable iso that contains the Dell diagnostics tools for laptops. Is it possible to somehow use this iso to boot into the diagnostic tool from PXE using SCCM 2007?
  19. I am attempting to import Dell E6510 CAB drivers into SCCM 2012 but everyone of them fails except for the ST Micro driver. Upon completing the import wizard the failure gives the following error: The selected file is not a valid Windows device driver. In the DriverCatalog.log on the SCCM server I see the following: This driver does not have a valid version signature. Failed to initialize driver digest. Code 0xe0000102 Is there a setting in SCCM to accept unsigned drivers during the import process or something that I am missing? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  20. Does anyone know if there is a way to skip the Set BIOS password step in an OSD if there is already a password set. I want the task sequence to add the BIOS password if non-existent and skip it if it is. Thanks, Mike
  21. Hello I'm having a bit of trouble deploying Win7 to an OptiPlex 790. I have added the NIC driver to WinPE. It boots into WinPE, starts the TS, applies the OS, applies the the OptiPlex 790 driver package(lates cab imported from Dell). On the next step after applying drivers, "Setup Windows and ConfigMgr" after it reboots it fails with error code 80007002. Pressing F8 reveals that it has no network. After it fails and restart, I can log on to Windows. everything seems OK except that there is no network driver. I can manually load the network driver, the same I use in the driver package, and
  22. I have finally figured out the TS to set a BIOS password, enable and activate the TPM... However, the built in 'Enable Bitlocker' step fails, with no error codes, and no logs. It appears to successfully complete, but it doesn't. I think I may need a script to take ownership. All of the scripts that I am running work beautifully within the OS via cmd, but through configmgr, not so good. Any help/advice would be great. Thanks!
  23. I am trying to enable and activate the TPM chip on the Dell machine's we have. So far I have created the CCTK package, pushed it to my DP, etc, but it keeps failing at setting the BIOS password. I have been unable to get my task sequence to complete. Everything that I have read so far seems to lead me in the same direction, and yet I can get nothing to cooperate.
  24. Can anyone give me a few tips on how to achieve this? I have an .exe file that I downloaded from DELL; I can use the -NOPAUSE parameter to pass to this file, to force a shutdown and to disable notifications. I created a package and I deployed it to a collection (as required) that queries all my devices with a BIOS less than 'x'. The collection query process works fine as it shows the only DELL machine that has a BIOS version less than 'x'; however, the package is sent to the computer, but it doesn't actually run. Any ideas on how to get this to work? Thanks!
