Dell OpenManage Server Agent 4.2.1 provides support for unattended
installation on Windows NT and Windows 2000. This feature is
documented in the Dell OpenManage Server Agent User's Guide.
The following information supplements the procedures provided in
the user's guide.

NOTE: Executing the unattended install program "setup.exe /s" is
an asynchronous operation like many Microsoft Windows applications.
Once you have entered the "setup.exe /s" command, the task returns
to the batch stream or command line prompt while the unattended
install continues to execute in the background.

1. If you want to pause the batch stream until the unattended
install completes, use the following command:

"start /wait setup.exe /s"

2. To activate the Dell OpenManage Server Agent after performing
the unattended installation, reboot the system.
Warning: Do not turn off your computer or disconnect from your power source while updating the BIOS or you may harm your computer. During the update, your computer will restart and you will briefly see a black screen.

This driver has been tested by both the independent software vendor (ISV) and Dell on the operating systems, graphics cards, and application supported by your device to ensure maximum compatibility and performance. Details

Dell recommends the customer review specifics about the update to determine if it applies to your system. The update contains changes that impact only certain configurations, or provides new features that may/may not apply to your environment.
