    Hi,

    I have a Workgroup edistion of WDM installed. And it picks up all the WYSE devices in our organisation, we have both S90 and C90LE terminals.

    However, in the “non-PXE capable” they all have “no”. Does that mean the S90 and C90LE models can never be non PXE? or is there an add on I can install?

    Non-PXE means that the client have a boot agent preinstalled and can be flashed without PXE.
    For the C90LE units you can install the latest image via PXE. This will bring the bootagent with it and from then on you can image without PXE.

    Thanks for the reply,

    I have tried what you suggested, and downloaded the latest imaged from here

    https://appservices.wyse.com/pages/serviceandsupport/support/dlOraFW.asp?which=108&model=C90LE%28Windows%20XPe%29

    Then I used the USB imaging tool to image the WYSE Terminal, complete with the BIOS and CMOS. But sadly it still didn’t make the terminal non-pxe.

    Unfortunately i cant image the terminal using PXE because i can’t get that to work at all. That is why I wanted to use non-PXE.

    Any more help would be gratefully appreciated 🙁

    Mike

    Check the WDM client details for the disk details. Do you have a 16MB partition on the C90LE?

    Hi,

    Thanks for the help with this. I found out what was casuing the imaging problem.

    Rater embarrasingly it was a mini switch I was using in the office. Apparantly this was confusing Rappor or Merlin whatever. Something to do with the DHCP tables I guess.

    Soon as I removed the switch and plugged the rapport server straight into the switch in the comms room. Everythng worked a treat.

    Thanks again for your help. This thread can be closed.
