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.
