I have a Dell Latitude 2-in-1 laptop. Then then reboot and press F I get another menu in extremely small font that says:. It looks like you have the correct resource with document SLN Enter BIOS setup.
Use the arrow keys and highlight "Advanced Boot Options". Please let me know if you have in fact tried this and are still having difficulties. I have also tried with and without Secure Boot enabled. Still no luck. The Cab files can be downloaded here from the Dell support site. I have sent you a friend request if you continue to have difficulties and if needed I will research further.
You have to use the supplied network dongle.
This particular computer has a docking station box, then it has a bunch of dongles to use instead of the dock box. The dock box is not recognized by the system bios but the dongle is. Also, each one has its own MAC address so you can get the MAC address of the dongle by plugging it in to another computer USB port and run the command prompt and type "getmac".
Then unplug it and run getmac again and which ever one is not on the list the 2nd time is the correct MAC address for the dongle. Browse Community. Turn on suggestions.

So how do you PXE Boot using this docking station?
All forum topics Previous Topic Next Topic. Enter BIOS setup 3.So I just purchased several Optiplex workstations, and I got one unboxed and was attempting to PXE boot to do my usual imaging. Anyone seen this before?
When imaging from a standard Legacy image, and are not needed. Did you set those options on your DHCP? Depending on your imaging system you may have to change the boot file to one that is compatible for uefi booting.
Also if you are not booting a microsoft imaging tool, disable secure boot in the firmware too for uefi booting. Also depending on your imaging system you may only deploy a leagacy bios captured image to a legacy bios based system. The same goes true for uefi captured images may only be deployed to uefi target systems.
I am really, really embarrassed. I had the machine next to our server rack in our IT room and there was a free patch cord from a server we had just decommissioned. So, I thought "how convenient! I just plugged it back in and PXE boot works fine now. It would be nice if Dell could tell you PXE boot failed though Thanks guys! To continue this discussion, please ask a new question.

Jason This person is a verified professional.I've recently purchased some new Dell Optiplex 's. This is the first time I've gotten this model, so I went through the standard procedure of downloading the latest WinPE and Win10 driver packs from Dell's website and imported them to my MDT server.
If I try to deploy my image now, it will fail almost immediately after picking the task sequence due to not detecting appropriate storage drivers. Has anyone else run in to this? It's not a big deal to make the setting change and it doesn't affect the performance of the m. I do this to all of my machines. Good call. That seems to have fixed the problem! I'm facing the same behavior with my freshly received OptiPlex Finally did you manage to get the job done with MDT?
Yes, I'm using the total control driver management method for injecting drivers. Versions are as follow: MDT 6. Should have missed something Sounds like the storage drivers might be the issue in particular if it's trying to image the computer but fails to Dell SupportAssist. I am having the same problem.
Optiplex We just ordered of these models. Just to clarify, you are able to network boot in to MDT and select your task sequence, but it fails at that point? I recently just received a Dell Optiplex to also image. I used this instead of WDS.We received a new Latitude recently. I can PXE boot to our imaging server no problem.
I select a task sequence and start imaging no problem. The OS installs then a reboot occurs, which is normal. However upon reboot it's like it can't find the hard drive. It attempts to PXE boot again which I cancel then it says no boot device found.
The error message can differ a bit as it is network card controlled. Unfortunately there is no single fix for this issue. There are a lot of causes for this issue. I will list solutions down here as I run into them. All approved and rejected devices are added to a database.
If a device is rejected WDS will not respond to requests coming from this device. To do this log on to your WDS server and run the following command:. The only thing I can think of is this but really not sure that it completely applies to your situation. On some of the boards we imaged, the network card driver had a setting in it that you had to manually set the mac address.
When you first imaged it it would be all zeroes and it would never find the network because of that. Maybe the network driver zeroed out the mac address. Okay then, you'll want to make sure the drive is bootable. Use a recovery image to get into the windows recovery environment and start diskpart.
I experienced something similar with windows 10 pro using MBR and Legacy. Computer and Data Services is an IT service provider. Since we don't know what software you're using, using the GUI of the imaging software, can you locate the drive in the software as the "Target" drive manually? That should be the first confirmation that you are actually able to see the HDD in the laptop. If so, there are some special steps that you have to go through to get the drive to actually take an image.By nhottingerMarch 6, in Configuration Manager Up until a couple days ago, we had no problem imaging our Dell desktops.
From OptiPlex 's all the way up to our new 's. Yesterday we received 5 new 's that will not image at all.
Most of the time it doesn't even get to the point where we can hit F12 to start. Occasionally we do get the F12 screen and it looks like it's going to start, but then freezes up and fails. I've attached a few images to show my progress. I've looked at all the different settings I can think of in SCCM and on the individual pc's and don't see anything different. Any idea what is going on here?
I created a new WinPE. Then changed it back to the original. Not sure why, but it works. Did you try added the nic driver to the boot image??? I was having a similar issue with some HP 's that we are wanting for our school system.
We added the nic driver to the boot image and we are able to image that model now. I added drivers for the a while back when we first started getting these in. Up until now they have imaged just fine. Now, as you can see from my original post edits, it started working, then stopped again, now for some reason they are working again. I'm afraid this wont' last long though and I can't keep troubleshooting this on a day to day basis.
The weird thing that got it working this time was to change the bios boot mode to UEFI then it worked until it had to reboot.
At that point I changed it back to Legacy and it finished imaging. Any idea why this is happening? I am currently having the same issues. PXE willl not boot no matter what on those s. So i just said to hell with that and using a bootable CD for now.

This has been true of all the models of Laptop and Desktop that we'e bought in the last six months at least. So last week we had an OptiPlex delivered, it's our first and was substituted by the supplier as they could no longer get the s that we had been using with the above method. Everything looks the same, physically and in the BIOS, all of the available options and layout are the same, the only difference?
I tied every combination of settings and checked everything I could think of and found nothing was able to give me the option to boot from DVD back in the bios settings, or from the boot menu itself. Updated the BIOS to latest as well.
So I started a support chat with Dell online and went through their troubleshooting, it didn't take much for the agent to set up a On-Site visit for a Motherboard replacement. I was half expecting the agent to inform me that they had simply removed the functionality at this point. Today the On-Site tech showed up and long story short he was completely stumped. We could not get the DVD boot option to show up, he agreed that as far as he was aware it should be there.
So, Waffle over - My question to you Spiceheads out there is do you have any info about Dell removing specifically the DVD legacy boot option? Or does anyone have a OptiPlex that they would be willing to check? Neither the online agent or the local Dell tech were aware of any such move, but we know what Dell can be like for stripping out core functionality with little notice haha. Why not use UEFI for whatever diagnostic disk you have in mind? I know Acronis can as well.
I suspect most other modern tools can too. MCEStaff it's partly academic, I need to know if this is a feature or a fault going forwards. Still have plenty of useful Legacy discs as well though lol. After adding or removing new hardware, System Inventory page may not update the changes automatically.
This is because inventory data collected during manufacturing process may not be updated with new changes. Save and exit from option and then reboot the system to collect new system inventory. After the inventory is collected, the System Inventory page displays the correct Hardware and software inventory data. Context is Dell iDrac 6 firmware 2. CPU type, count and memory slots populated are wrong. System works fine. It did fix the issue. Interesting as to why DVD has disappeared.
Whilst it may not be what you want, you could use Plop. Thanks dbeato but that link is not what is happening here, there is no problem booting with the available devices, I just don't have all of my devices available. I have now tried downgrading the BIOS but any downgrades below 1.
My Dell support agent is now trying to arrange a collect and return which will take 10 days, seeing as the tech couldn't solve it on site with a new mobo and DVD drive I would really rather have a straight swap or an answer from Dell, as this could be a complete waste of time. Can anyone from Dell chime in on this at all please? Even just to reassure me that you have not removed legacy DVD booting? We keep a few of these lying around since we haven't bought a computer with an internal DVD drive in years.
Then while reading the post by george regarding Spanning-Tree, I re-checked all switches in my imaging room. None of the ports on the switch at the host had spanning-tree portfast enabled.DELL Optiplex 3060SFF 8400 i5 cannot boot windows from SSD.
I left this off all ports in an effort to have as plain of configuration as possible. I went ahead and enabled spanning-tree portfast on the port the host was connected to and re-tried FOG.
This time it went right to the host registry and inventory process without stopping. I just realized that both switches may be missing their helper address information for DHCP. Could this be contributing to the problem? But as you are saying that you get to the FOG menu now and see a DHCP issue after this I kind of doubt that missing ip helper settings are causing this. Unfortunately it looks like we never got to finish testing and this might still be an issue.
Not sure though. The IP helper settings are typically done on your core router or L3 switch acting as a router. These dhcp helpers will forward local dhcp requests to your remote dhcp servers. Its either all or nothing with the relays. You will either have dhcp or no dhcp if they are misconfigured. What happens here is that as each kernel is loaded it causes the network link light to wink momentarily turn off and then back on.
