Deploy Dell BIOS and Driver Updates

    You can do drivers through Windows Update and, by extension, WSUS. As far as the BIOS, I've had to do that before and it was a real nightmare. A lot of updates are .exe files but they require input or they are just a self-extracting file that you have to import from the BIOS itself. Silent deployment documentation is sporadic at best so YMMV on this one.

    PDQ and DCU work great together and do exactly what you want, single setup for every (compatible) model.

    I don't know how often they're releasing Windows 7 versions, though.

    Grant, Am looking at the link you referenced and working to set something up. Do you recommend deploying DCU first and using that, or just creating an update package for each model with all the different drivers that need to be updated?

    Thank you.
