I'm having problems imaging Dell Venue 11 Pro (7130) tablets.  I have tweaked the various scripts and I'm still getting errors with the UEFI partitions.  The following lists the configuration information:


Task Error

The following task failed.

Task ID: 12

Task name: Create UEFI Partitions

Return code: 2147755356

Error description: Unknown error.


Installation Plan

Run Pre-installation Tasks

-         -  Create UEFI Partitions

-          - Install Vista/2008/7/8/2012 MBR

Deploy System Image

Run Mid-Level Tasks

-          - Apply UEFI Partitions

Reboot (Exit Boot Environment)

Run Post-Install Tasks

-          - CFG:Disable Firewall

-          - CFG:Enable RDC


Create UEFI Partitions – DISKPART Script:

Select disk 0


Convert gpt

Create partition efi size=500

Assign letter=s

Format quick fs=FAT32

Create partition msr size=128

Create partition primary

Format quick fs=NTFS



Apply UEFI Partitions – BAT Script

bcdedit /set {bootmgr} device partition=s:

bcdedit /set {memdiag} device partition=s:

bcdedit /set {default} device partition=c:

bcdedit /set {default} osdevice partition=c:

Bcdedit /set {FWbootmgr} displayorder {Bootmgr} /addfirst


Original Partitions – Disk 0:

Partition 1 System       500 MB

Partition 3 Reserved   128 MB

Partition 4 Recovery   2048 MB

Partition 5 Primary     220 GB

Partition 6 OEM          8 GB

Partition 7 Recovery   7475 MB


When capturing the original image I had to manually assign Disk 0, Volume 2 the drive letter 'S' as it wasn't detected automatically.  What am I doing wrong?

Thank you!

What version of the K2000 are you using?  As I recall, support for the Venue Pro 11 was added in the latest 3.7 version.

Also, here is an overall imaging doc for that model that might be helpful: http://www.dell.com/support/article/us/en/19/SLN292679/EN

I inherited the K2000 from a previous tech who has since left the company.The way he did it was to disable secure boot and enable legacy boot. Then just push the image like that.

Never got it working.  I manually configured the five tablets.

I realized I assigned S: to the wrong partition.  I reassigned it to Volume 1, but still have the same results.
