    Dell Precision M2400 / M4400 OS Deployment




      I'd like to query the masses and see if anyone has had luck yet with deploying WinPE out to Dell Precision M2400 and M4400 laptops. These are some of their newest models and appear to use the latest and greatest in drivers, which even the WinPE image on DroppedPackets does not have as of yet. The laptops I have are using:


      * Intel 825xx Gigabit Platform LAN Network Device (Specifically, 82567LM)

      * Intel Matrix Storage (Specifically Intel ICH8M-E/ICH9M-E SATA RAID Controller) 


      I am using the latest WinPE Image from DroppedPackets, and I would expect this to work on some of the older Dell's, provided that you call an M1330 or D620/D630 old! I'd like to get some help on getting these drivers up and running to go along with it.


      Interesting thought #2: These support IRRT (Intel Rapid Restore Technology) which does not look like it does anything different than AHCI from a LanDesk sense, but it's wortk throwing out there.
