...and then deploy them out as a mid or post install task?

I figure not, but just thought I'd ask the question. 
We have a few different Dell units (3040, 7270 etc) that we are imaging for a client and they have made a request to have various BIOS options changed as part of the imaging. One of these is to add a password, but we've also been asked to change a few other settings from default.

Can this be done with a script or capture tool...or are we looking at doing it manually?

Thank you


Duncan

We use Dell Command|Configure for this. It works great.

various manufactures provide i tool for managing bios on end clients if i can remember the dell equivalent is the DCCU, most of these work on a capture/replace mechanism

HP offer a similar tool and that works on a capture of the settings to a .config file and the settings can be changed in this file and the file along with the config tool deployed to end clients
