    Optiplex 9020 Not Building?

    We have some new Dell Optiplex 9020 [i5] computers that will not build on SCCM. I have captured relevant Windows drivers and created a task sequence in SCCM for the build. However the computer does not get as far as asking which OU and what computer name I wanted: The computer reboots after the SCCM splash screen [does not show any errors]

    Other stations/laptops still build normally.

    Ideas?

    Thanks.

    By the way how did you get it asking for the OU and stuff?

    When you PXE boot do you get as far as the first screen? (usually the password screen if you have one set) If you PXE boot and run the command prompt typing ipconfig do you get an ip address displayed?

    If you don't get an IP and PE just exits, usually means you need to put the NIC drivers into the boot image.

    Don't know as our LEA set up our network over the Summer. Not much help here I am afraid and still getting used to SCCM hence the question.

    We have a notification about our password after which the questions about station name and OU pops up. Our net Optiplex 9020s do not get as far as the password notification screen. I had thought about adding the drivers but other sources assure me that this is not the case so I was looking for a 'second opinion'

    I am really sure that you need to put the drivers for the NIC into the boot image. You will have already imported this as Windows will probably need it. Find the boot image under the software section of SCCM right click properties. In one of the tabs you can add drivers. Find the Nic driver and add it.

    Do not forget to update the distribution points or it wont work.

    That is something I am used to now with SCCM.

    Thanks.

    Looks like I might have cracked it! I have added the network card driver to my 64 bit boot image.

    My stumbling block was I thought that I could not add drivers to the boot image without making changes to/adding driver packages at the same time.

    The build is not finished yet but it is looking a LOT better.

    Edit: Build has completed and all looks well. The station has joined the domain and packages are deploying. One slight niggle: A device driver has not installed: PCI Simple Communications Controller. This does not seem to be affecting the performance and I have found that this often happens. In this case I had a fully working computer with all drivers installed to capture the drivers from and it still didn't install this device. Odd.

    They are not all in ones. I would say that they are towers but Dell don't call them that [can't remember what Dell call them exactly]

    i gotcha... their naming is weird. Im gonna order some of the 9020 AIO 20 or 23" screens and see how they compare... looks like a much simpler setup wire wise for my workers...

    Just checked the handbook that comes with the stations. Dell call them 'Mini-Towers' There is nothing mini about them!
