Last I heard from Dell the K2000 doesn't really support Dual Boot imaging. Macs get OSX and PCs get Windows if I want to dual boot a Mac with OSX/Windows it should be possible but they can't tell me how.

I figured out a work around by just putting the KBE on USB Flashdrives.

1. Image the Macs with OSX and setup Bootcamp (There's apple scripts you can do to automate bootcamp)
2. Boot the Macs up into the Flashdrives with the KBE on it and it will load up WinPE allowing you to select Windows based images in the K2000

***Note*** Make sure that the pre-install task isn't set to Create Single Partition, I created a task called Bootcamp Partition like this


Drivers_Postinstall folder should be Apple_Inc > Windows_x_xXX > iMacXX,X (ex Apple_Inc\Windows_7_x64\iMac15,1)

So... Now that I explained my work around has anyone come up with anything else?

Dell's recommended procedure is to create the Windows image using another tool and restore it to the Bootcamp partition afterwards. They provided us with a whitepaper outlining their approach.

Our solution is to use DeployStudio for imaging our MacOS devices.

  • We have DeployStudio in our environment too. We were hoping to have all our imaging needs in 1 product though. Dells approach sounds pretty much what I came up with myself except the Dell Tech was expecting me to have the wim on an external device and image the bootcamp partition that way...
