    We defaulted it to 125% dpi which makes it better under desktop mode. It has some issues with the auto-rotation where it drops back to desktop mode from whatever you're in if you turn it then turn it back. The metro version of ie10 also still has a few glitches, EG for instance won't allow enter to insert a line break, probably thanks to the horrible vbulitin js behind the scenes but it still manages to limp through under desktop browsers. I wanted to get a beta of Office 2012 to put on to as that has metro ui as well however couldn't find a released one. Some of the flash and shockwave based desktop projector stuff is a bit squiffy needing two clicks/touches to register as a click but I think that's more to do with adobe.

    Not a solution but can you make an auto WinPE usb boot device like with MDT that you could boot from that would then chain it to the NIC.

    It looks like the bootloader was trying to chain load to the PXE image via the boot device but its implementation of PXE is a bit screwy and it can't find the file.

    Can you try booting it to a different PXE solution like thinstation on a seporate network to check if the issue effects other implementations to and if it chokes at a different place with another different error message.

    Ill have a go at setting up a separate network with a different pxe solution.

    Although your suggestion of USB booting would be a workable solution. Is this something SCCM can do?

    edit: our SCCM is virtual so not sure how that would work with USB...

    Under MDT it makes a WIM and an ISO for booting, there are various tools for dumping it on a USB key which you can map to over an RDP session.

    There is an option under deployment workbench to do it too, I think that SCCM builds in MDT so the option should still be there somewhere.

    I use WDS rather than SCCM (which I detest) so not my area of expertise. I will say though that BIOS version A05 is now available.

    Not that it stops the ST being pants. Yesterday mine wouldn't even power on after going into hibernate, and was so badly stuffed I had to dismantle it and detach the internal battery to reset it. I would never buy another one of these, and I will be thinking twice about buying any future tablets from Dell.

    Finally got round to building an image with the enterprise RTM version of windows 8 32 bit and Im really struggling to get wireless stable. It connects but then it drops out after a couple of minutes, going to 'limited connectivity'.

    Using the latest A05 Bios, and the latest driver from the website, but its still not solid.

    What drivers have you got working for the wifi?

    Pretty sure I just used the ones from the Dell Support site. Haven't tried with Windows 8 RTM though.

    Have you tried using the 64bit version on them, little more memory hungry but generally more stable driver wise.

    That's unfortunate:

    we have some Atom gear running x64 but they have a different revision of CPU in them.

    Windows 8 Consumer Preview - HP Slate 2 NIC (Atheros) driver fail - code 10

    Maybe do a search for the pnpid and/or do an 'update' from the context menu in device manager to search the windows update db.
