I'm still very new at troubleshooting issues, so this might be a very noob mistake, but I'm trying to run a basic scripted install (windows 10) on a precision 5510. I have downloaded the drivers from the driver feed section of the k2000, and I can get it to boot into kbox with a KBE usb. The scripted install fails when actually installing windows because it fails to find the drive partition. AHCI in the BIOS, and the drive is formatted NTFS with a pre-install task. I've had the same issue with the XPS 12 2n1, and I suspect there are drivers I may need to add somewhere for the solid state drives, except we also image OptiPlex 5050's with the same type solid state drives. . .

ANY assistance I can get would be greatly appreciated

  • Before kicking off the Install, go to Recovery options, and open Command prompt.

    Do a DISKPART

    then LIST VOL, make sure your USB drive is not using any letter involved in your formatting. (like C: or D:).

    If it is, then just give it a different letter, and start your deployment.

    See:

    Also on DISKPART do a
    Select DISK 0 (assuming disk 0 is the SSD)
    then DETAL DISK, check if it's an NVMe drive, if it is ,make sure you are not installing Win7:

Try rebuilding the USB drive

  • Since tone is hard to convey over text, I'm asking in genuine curiousity; if I can already use the KBE disk to boot to KBOX, how does rebuilding the KBE disk help with the scripted install? I'm going to try it and see what happens, but I'd like to know how it works if it does.
