Silent Bios Update Through SCCM

I am trying to run an upgrade script through SCCM for Dell Bios Firmware.

I need it to run silently without an immediate reboot.

When I push the script, the upgrade runs and logs as successful with an exit code of 2 - Reboot Required.

However, when a user manually reboots after the process either immediately afterwards or at End of Business, the bios flash does not run during the post sequence and no upgrade is performed.

This is the script: E7470-06.exe /s /FORCEIT /l=c:\logs\E7470-06.log

Any help as to why it doesn't complete the upgrade after reboot would be greatly appreciated.

Log Capture:

***BIOS flash started on 10/12/2016 at 13:50:29***
Command: C:\WINDOWS\ccmcache\5x\E7440A18.exe /s /FORCEIT /l=c:\logs\E7440A18.log

Try running the update as the SYSTEM account and see if you get the same results as the deployment tool. By all accounts a delayed reboot souldnt stop it from updating, I think there might me something else going on.
