1 Overview The purpose of this document is for reimaging Dell Latitude Tablet. These images include the Dell recommended software stack and settings, drivers, and applications which are tested and validated with the system. Drivers and applications must be installed on Dell Latitude Tablet in a prescribed order to ensure optimal performance. Failure to install drivers and applications in this document may result in undesirable performance. Dell provides drivers and applications that are not included in Microsoft Operating Systems. These drivers are required to enable the new technologies and features of Dell Latitude Tablet. Reinstalled images should be built from a clean hand installed OS load and following the steps in this guide. Dell does not recommend starting from an image built on previous generations of products or other computer systems. Dell recommends ensuring BIOS settings are correctly set and using the latest device drivers and applications when imaging their systems. This How-To guide applies to the following systems:

BIOS 2.4

Dell recommends flashing the latest BIOS available to system. This is posted on Dells driver &

downloads support web site (dell.com/support) under the BIOS section.

Some of the BIOS settings are critical to Operating System performance and installation. These are

recommended settings as follows:

1. POST Behavior-> Fastboot->Thorough

The system USB configuration must be set to allow for USB boot. Change the BIOS default seting from

Minimal mode to Thorough.

2. System Configuration->USB/Thunderbolat Configuration

For Latitude 5175/5179: System Configuration->USB/Thunderbolat Configuration->Enable Boot Support - Enable

Dell Latitude Tablet and 2-in-1 System Reimage How-To Guide

For Latitude 7275/XPS 9250, we recommended to additional enable Thunderbolt Boot Support for

TypeC USB Dock device. System Configuration->USB/Thunderbolt Configuration->Enable Thunderbolt Boot

Support. The Type-C device will be identified and boot to external device via Type-C.

2. In order to boot to PXE from an Ethernet network device, the UEFI network stack must be enabled. General->Advanced Boot Options->Enable Legacy Option ROMs/Enable UEFI Network Stacks

For UEFI Mode: Enable IEFI Netork Stack

For Legacy Mode: Enable Legacy Option (The additional seeting for Enable Legacy Option ROM, Secure

Boot Enable > Disable)

3 OS

Two basic methods to install OS image 3.1

1. Hand install from UEFI bootable USB flash drive that contains the OS install files.

2. Automated image install/deployment through Enterprise solutions such as Microsofts SCCM.

3.1.2 Hand Install through USB Flash Drive

Microsoft has made is easier than ever to create USB flash drive install media. Just download the Media

Creation Tool (MCT) available from these URLs for the desired OS.

Windows 10 - 64 Bit - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

Windows 8.1 - 64 Bit - http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/create-reset-refresh-media

3.1.2.1.1 Windows 10 USB install media creation

Download the Windows 10 MCT to any workstation running Windows 7 or higher. Run the tool as admin and follow the prompts. 1. Accept the EULA.

2. Select Create installation media for another PC.

Dell Latitude Tablet and 2-in-1 System Reimage How-To Guide

4 To install the OS with a bootable USB flash drive/SCCM:

4.1.1.1 To install the OS using a UEFI bootable USB flash drive with a USB-C dock:

Dell Latitude Tablet and 2-in-1 System Reimage How-To Guide

As soon as the Dell splash screen is displayed, press the F12 to bring up the one-time boot selection

menu. For this example, the Dell Dock TB15 was used in conjunction with a Latitude 7275. The

process for the XPS 9250/Latutude 5179/5175 would be similar.

After pressing enter, the system will then boot to the USB flash drive and start the OS installer. Follow

the OS installer prompts to complete the OS install process.

After the OS is installed, the device drivers and supporting application must be installed in order to

provide full system functionality.

The drivers and apps can be downloaded from Dell web site and placed on a USB flash drive and then

copied to a scratch or temporary folder on the system. After the driver files and apps have been copied

to the system, they can be manually installed or installed by script(s).

The recommended install order for device drivers and apps is outlined below in paragraph 3.2

Recommended Drivers / Applications Installation Order

4.1.2 Installation through Microsofts SCCM

Latitude 5175/5179/7250 and XPS 9250 supports PXE network booting for connection to automated

install and deployment servers. It is recommended to use the network capabilities of the USB to

Ethernet adapters or docking unit to provide PXE boot and network support for the system. With UEFI

boot mode, the PXE boot image provided by the PXE server must be a WinPE boot.wim that can boot

in UEFI mode. In order for WinPE to connect to the network image server after startup, the boot wim

Dell Latitude Tablet and 2-in-1 System Reimage How-To Guide

image file must have the drivers installed for the Latitude/XPS systems network device. Latitude and

XPS can boot both standard PXE DOS (initrd) and EUFI images; dependent on BIOS boot mode and

USB to Ethernet adapters.

Support PXE network booting for connection to automated install and deployment servers. It is

recommended to use the network capabilities of the docking unit to provide PXE boot and network

support for the system.

As an example of Latitude 5175/5179 boot up system wtih Ethernet connection to the WD15 docking,

as soon as the Dell splash screen is displayed, press the F12 to bring up the one-time boot selection

menu.

For UEFI mode, Use the arrow keys to highlight USB NIC (IPV4) or USB NIC (IPV6) and press Enter.

Dell Latitude Tablet and 2-in-1 System Reimage How-To Guide

If the network topology is IPv4: Use the keyboard arrow keys or the systems Volume-Up

button to highlight, Onboard NIC (IPv4) then press Enter or press the Volume-Down

button on the tablet.

If the network topology is IPv6: Use the keyboard arrow keys or the systems Volume-Up

button to highlight, Onboard NIC (IPv6) then press Enter or press the Volume-Down

button on the system.

For Legacy mode, use the arrow keys to highlight the USB NIC then press enter.

Dell Latitude Tablet and 2-in-1 System Reimage How-To Guide

Latitude 5175/5179/7250 and XPS 9250 have PXE code included in the UEFI BIOS that can boot the

following USB-C network devices.

USB-C/Thunderbolt to Ethernet Controller

Dell P/N: D59GG (USB-C to Gigabit Ethernet)

Dell P/N: 5FDDV (Dell Dock WD15)

Dell P/N: J00G9 (Dell Dock TB15)
