    Post Centrally managing my new Dell PCs BIOS

    We've just purchased a number of Dell 390 and 9010 PCs. One of the more annoying tasks is securing the BIOS and setting boot orders etc on all these stations.

    Is there a central way I can do this with a console of some kind?

    There is using the Dell Client Configuration Toolkit. I just generate a .exe with all my bios settings using the software and push it out via SCCM. SCCM isnt needed though you can use a script.

    Always wondered why you can't do this through SCCM or other 3rd party management tools. I remember Lenovo going on about how the remote management was meant to be wonderful but their links to actually making it work have a habit of ending in 404 pages or marketing hot air
