Installing Dell CCTK and Configuring BIOS Settings

Posted By: Mick Pletcher - 12:18 PM


& Comment

This script will install the Dell CCTK and set specified BIOS settings. Unlike the CCTK that allows you to create a multiplatform file to run against any Dell model machine, this script takes a different approach so that there is a description, logging, and verification of each BIOS setting. This script will first install the CCTK that needs to be in the same directory as the script. It then executes the CCTKSetting function that allows for you to enter each desired setting. There are four variables passed into the function. The first is a description. The second is the actual name of the BIOS setting. The third is the desired value for the setting. Finally, the fourth is only for the bootorder setting. There has to be an additional value passed for this setting.

When executed, the script writes both to the screen and a log file the settings that were changed. Since this is a multiplatform, I have included a return message "unavailable" for those settings not present of the machine this was executed on.

NOTE: If you use this script in a build process and make changes to embsataraid, the OS will likely fail to load. This setting has to be changed before the OS is layed down.

You can download this script here.
