Has anyone been able to image a Latitude 5540?
I've loaded the drivers manually into the appropriate folders on the SDA, afterwards I always re-cache the drivers. I've done this with nearly 40 different models and have yet to run into issues.
I've got a PXE environment setup for both Windows 10 and Windows 11. Neither work, and the system won't actually boot into the PXE system.
We are currently working on a life cycle change and have around 290 of these machines to image.
We are having the same issue with the same model. We have the appropriate drivers and have recached. I've tried Raid on and off, booting to integrated NIC and IPV4 with thunderbolt adapter (thunderbolt boot enabled), the best i can do with Raid off is get to the point where it is unable to ping the appliance says check DHCP options or network drivers. This is via USB thunderbolt.
With Raid On we can get it to boot to the SDA GUI but when selectin the scripted install it is unable to load the windows 10 image due to being unable to create the UEFI partition.
I’ve run into this with several models. I run the default RAID configuration and don’t change anything. We image with MECM but honestly it’s all the same. Always make sure to have the RAID drivers (Intel RST VMD Controller) installed on the boot image. It typically comes in the driver packs Dell provides
