We have recently received a Dell Precision T7810 and I am attempting to import a driver set into our OSD task sequence.

The problem I am having is that any time the OSD sends a reboot command to the PC, it freezes. I can continue the OSD by manually rebooting the computer, but again it just freezes the next time it is set to reboot.

I can even replicate this by cancelling at the password screen in WinPE before even selecting a task sequence leading me to think this model isn’t compatible with WinPE 3 or something but can’t find any solid evidence.

Any ideas?

I have tried using a boot cd with no drivers, with only networking, with networking/storage/chipset drivers and with the whole WinPE 3 pack from Dell.

solution: I can confirm this is also and issue with WinPe4 after trying a new T7810 OSD from both SCCM 2007 and 2012 R2 even basic OS only causes the issue.

Ok a solution for both WinPE3 and WinPE4:

WinPE3/SCCM2007:

  1. Create a driver package of only required drivers, don’t use CAB, and add to SCCM sequence.
  2. Update your boot wim with drivers from Dell remembering not to add the SAS drivers -http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=47R7V&fileId=3439549449&osC…
  3. Set Bios mode to AHCI
  4. Boot from USB or PXE and deployment will work.

WinPE4/SCCM2012:

  1. Create a driver package of only required drivers, don’t use CAB, and add to SCCM sequence.
  2. Set Bios mode to AHCI
  3. Boot from USB or PXE and deployment will work.

 

About Product:

The Dell Precision Tower 7810 (T7810) is dual-socket tower workstation designed specifically for professionals who are looking for a desktop with some extra power for their graphics- or CPU-intensive workloads. Previously, we looked at the last generation of the T7810, which we found to be both flexible and performance-driven. For this review, we will be looking at the newly refreshed T7810, as Dell has upgraded its new Intel Broadwell EP Processors with more cores and better performance (specifically for multi-threaded applications). With these upgrades, Dell indicates that the T7810 will be even more effective for professional modeling, analysis, and calculation use cases.

Under the hood, the T7810 comes equipped with the latest dual Intel Xeon E5 processor series, which features up to 22 cores per processor and a generous amount of system memory that can be expanded up to 256GB of 2400MHz DDR4 ECC RAM. The newly refreshed Dell workstation also has various NVIDIA Quadro and AMD FirePro graphics card options, which range from low- to high-end performance; we’ve seen these new graphic cards used often in recent workstation reviews. Users can equip their workstation with up to two PCI Express x16 Gen 2/Gen 3 route, allowing for some pretty demanding software applications and large data sets.

The T7810 also provides a few different storage-technology options as well, as it now supports PCIe NVMe SSDs for some impactful performance capabilities. However, for users looking for more traditional, less expensive storage options, Dell also offers SATA SSD and HDD configurations as well via Intel’s Cache Acceleration Software (CAS). The CAS technology optimizes the workstation’s system memory by automatically determining the best cache level for active data, promoting maximum performance.

Our Dell Precision Tower 7810 build consists of an Intel Xeon CPU E5-2699 v4, 64GB of RAM, a 1TB Samsung PM951 NVMe SSD for maximum transfer speeds, and a NVIDIA M5000 with 8GB GDDR5 of memory.
