Managing and updating your bios

For this guide, I will be copying these files to the following location:\SCS-CFGMGR-MP\SWSTORE\BIOS\Dell CCTKNote your configuration file and the contents from the "X86_64" folder must be accessible through the same package in SCCM.This is because you need Dell's CCTK executable to apply your configuration.I have never had any issues creating a multiplatform package that works with different Dell models, even those manufactured as late as 2010.With that in mind, select the Create Multiplatform Package tab and configure the package options.Please note that this guide only applies to Dell systems.I tested these steps on a Dell Opti Plex 780 SFF (Small Form Factor), Dell Opti Plex 790 SFF, and Dell Opti Plex 3040 MT (Mini-Tower).Finally, we are going to create the task sequence that will push your BIOS configuration and any needed updates.

The toolkit will deploy this task sequence as a required advertisement and will also flash any BIOS updates needed using the revisions you downloaded earlier.

Open the Configuration Manager Admin Console and navigate to the Software Library applet.

Expand the Application Management node and click on the Packages applet.

All systems were running Windows 7 Professional x64 and Windows 10 Pro x64.

I cannot guarantee this guide will work with Windows Vista or Windows XP.
