  1. Hello, I just recently deployed 60 Dell Latitude 3050's with my technicians. We had some issues when leaving the computers set in UEFI mode. The PXE starts but hangs and moves really really slow loading the boot file. I left several booting went to lunch and came back and still didn't boot into smartdeploy boot file. After some word eating on my part, as my technicians recommend legacy mode instead, i insisted it wasn't necessary. But low and behold that worked flawlessly, after disabling secure boot and disabling UEFI boot options, legacy PXE worked fine. I did some quick research and I think it could be a driver issue with the PXE in winpe mode, some other people reporting having issues with WDS, but didn't really find any solution. So just fyi, as we have discovered, from model to model, UEFI seems to not work, and on some legacy doesn't work. I don't believe this anything to do with smartdeploy, but more WDS itself and manufacture drivers, not sure if anyone else has these issues as well. Perhaps experimenting with changing the driver in WINPE of the platform pack. I realize it could also be something simple as a bios update.

    Thanks for your help, with the one test machine I had it looks like not having "secure boot" enabled was causing the issue. Not sure if it was enable or disable from dell.

    Okay, I am checking now to see if this helps. I had some techs working on this for way too long and i found they changed a lot of settings all wonky in the bios.

    They were not in UEFI mode from the factory. I ended up factory reseting them and loading the recovery media, then install the smartdeploy agent, and deploy a package and that worked. But I will have to test further, the image was created in a vm, so uefi or legacy shouldnt matter.

    I was able to load the the OS from factory with t he DELL recovery usb, so not sure what the issue is here.

    after it looks like the image loads, the computer reboots and has no bootable device other then network nic. We were using pxe by the way not a usb boot disk.

  11. Trouble Deploying Dell Latitude 7490

    We recently received 10 Dell Latitude 7490, we are having trouble deploying the image on them, it cannot seem to see the SSD. Anyone have trouble with this or resolve this before?
  12. When I took the image, I selected for use with WDS and only selected the OS partition, that seems to have worked.
  13. You know what it started doing the error again. I had to make a change in the image and tried to take the image all over again using the iso to put in the vm, and gets all the way to the end before i get the error. logs: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AhwoICTP_02ug-4oQrAIKNYyEhgxIQ
  14. Windows 10 1709 "Fall" Update

    I am just leaving them in, as I found in the past major issues when messing with them. I do have some GPO's though that push a custom start menu and desktop from some users.
  15. Windows 10 1709 "Fall" Update

    for 1709 I had to start over from scratch for my images.
