Please note that this guide only applies to Dell systems.
Updating the BIOS on multiple laptops and desktops can be a tiresome task that may just seem easier to do without.
However, securing the BIOS can prevent attackers from overwriting or tampering with the OS and ensures your data stays safe.
For this guide, I will be saving my configuration to the following location:\SCS-CFGMGR-MP\SWSTORE\BIOS\Dell CCTK\~Configs Once you save your configuration, navigate to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Dell\Command Configure" and copy the contents of the folder "X86_64" to a location SCCM can access.
You will be importing the directory to which you copy these files as a package in SCCM.
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.
Add another step to Run Command Line and configure the step as shown below: Make sure to point the step to the package that contains the executable you wish to run.
Repeat this process for every model to which you wish to deploy BIOS updates.
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.
All systems were running Windows 7 Professional x64 and Windows 10 Pro x64.
