If I created a new deployment with the exact same settings, then it would work just fine.  After lots […]

SCCM PXE Boot Fails 0xc0000001

I was banging my head against a wall for a bit with some new machines (Dell Optiplex 3020’s) we got in that wouldn’t PXE boot.  They would start, then error out with 0xc0000001, “A required device isn’t connected or can’t be accessed”.  I knew I had the right drivers installed in my pxe boot media, […]

Get Dell Warranty Status within ConfigMgr 2012 console

Being a mostly all Dell shop, getting warranty info right from the console would be extremely helpful.  Luckily, someone made a console extension to do just that!  More info can be found here: http://www.scconfigmgr.com/2013/10/11/get-dell-warranty-status-within-configmgr-2012-console/
