Issue



The DS for Dell 3.2 MR1 WinPE 2.1 pre-boot environment is built using DTK 3.2. Consequently, the drivers and utilities included in DTK 3.4 are unavailable.


Environment



DS for Dell 3.2 MR1


Cause



The WinPE 2.1 pre-boot environment shipped with DS for Dell 3.2 MR1 is built using DTK 3.2.


Solution



A patch to update the DS for Dell WinPE 2.1 pre-boot environment (DS for Dell 3.2 MR1) with the drivers and tools in DTK 3.4 is available and attached to this article.

In updating to use DTK 3.4, the DTK tools will be included in the WinPE environment rather than stored and executed from within the eXpress share. Customers will need to modify any custom tasks that employ hard-coded paths to the tools on the eXpress share to instead execute the tools from within the WinPE environment. That path is: X:\Dell\Toolkit\Tools
