Deployment Solution 6.9 SP6 - Release Date 2013-11-22 ?

This issue has been solved. See solution.


I am wondering if it is correct that DS 6.9 SP6 should have been released last week 22nd November 2013? At least the following link says so.

However I cannot find any Release Notes or any download. Can anyone confirm that it will be released or not?

I would be highly interested in this, too. I have many customers desprately waiting for this.

There is even a KB-article for this:

Please take the time and mark this post as solution if it solved your problem - thanks!

No download link at the moment - only for Deployment Solution for Clients 6.9 SP5 MR3.

Tech support had told me to wait an hour, yesterday at 3pm, and it would be available for download.  Got about 15-20 boxes with UEFI waiting here with no way to deploy.  May have to look for alternatives in the meantime.

normaly you can switch in UEFI/BIOS to compatible (BIOS) Mode

I know the SP is released, just not posted on the Web Site.  We're looking for an ETA.  Some who have called support have received it via FTP, but that's not obviously ideal for ALL customers.  Checking.
