Does anyone have a script which can detect a DELL Latitude's boot order and if it is set to a specific order then the script deletes a specific registry key.

I have custom software in inventory which is set to detect this key and then add it to a label which is associated with a scheduled script which sets the boot order to our liking. If the boot order is already set then this key needs to be deleted and the machine removed from the label.

If you have the cctk installed in windows or have it on a share the command for the cctk is "cctk -o=somefile"

you would have to exam that file and strip the line and compare it

bootorder=legacytype,+hdd.1,+embnic,+cdrom,+usbdev,-floppy,+hdd.2

  • This video will show how to deploy a script that uses a self contained cctk executable: https://kace.webex.com/kace/lsr.php?AT=pb&SP=TC&rID=64034817&rKey=51d923e8c48c0803&act=pb

I don't believe the boot order of the BIOS can be accessed from within Windows. What's wrong with running the script against systems that currently have the desired BIOS settings? Then you could make a generic Latitude label and catch the systems that don't have the correct settings much easier.
