SMBIOS Drive for Dell Client PowerShell Provider

Jump to solution

I cannot change to the dell smbios directory for the dell client powershell provider. When I do a driverquery.exe /v /fo csv | ConvertFrom-CSV | Where {$_.'Module Name' -match 'Dcdbas'} I see the results for dcdbas64.sys. I've attached a screenshot of the results.

Is the provider loaded and DellSmbios: drive available in your PowerShell session?  

You can check by executiong the cmdlets Get-Module and Get-PSDrive.

 dcdbas64.sys is not required for 1.0 release of Dell Client Power Shell Provider.

Thanks

After I run the command Import-Module .\DellBIOSProvider.psd1 I will do a Get-Module and I do see DellBIOSProvider listed but when I do a Get-PSDrive I do not see it listed.

I have attached a screenshot of the output.

Please retry to load module with -

import-module .\DellBIOSProvider.psd1 -Force -verbose

Send us the screenshot of the verbose messages if DellSmbios: drive is still not available.

Thanks

Looks that required WMI-ACPI support is not available in BIOS. Please send the model number and BIOS version of your computer to verify.

You can check here if your platform and BIOS is in the supported list  -

BIOS upgrade may be required in your platform to execute DellBIOSprovider.

Thanks

It's an OptiPlex 9020 bios version A12.

I'm going to update the bios to A14 or newer and see if that will fix the issue. I'll let you know the results.

Thank you
