BB IT Posted May 30, 2018 Report Share Posted May 30, 2018 Hi, I've just been through the following troubleshoot, and was wondering if someone else have had the same issue. In that case I'll share my experience and solution: We just bought some 30 E5590 laptops to roll out a workstation upgrade for our users. The image deployment goes well until the mandatory BIOS upgrade from the platform pack kicks in. The laptops come with 1.0.8 out of the box, and is upgraded to 1.1.9 during the deployment. Right after this upgrade the PC reboots, and I was met with a "No boot device found" screen. In the BIOS the UEFI boot manager is missing from the boot sequence. When I added it manually, and pointed to the specific EFI boot manager from the deployed OS, I was now facing a corrupt OS message (couldn't be repaired with Win10 from a USB). I also noticed the SSD was present in the legacy devices of the boot sequence before the BIOS upgrade, but was now missing from the list after the upgrade. What I tried: Switch from legacy to UEFI boot (and vice versa). Upgraded BIOS to 1.2.3, and downgraded to 1.0.8. Changed drive settings from RAID to AHCI and redeploy the image. In the end it turned out I had to activate the UEFI PXE settings on the NIC in BIOS, and redeploy the image once more. Worked like a charm right after. As I have not seen this specific issue mentioned in any of the SmartDeploy documentation I thought it could be worth sharing with the community.
