Improper Imaging Issues for Venue 11 Pro 5130 Systems

Some system users are having difficulty imaging Venue 11 Pro 5130 tablets using the Microsoft DISKPART tool and Symantec Ghost imaging software.

Note: This document assumes you have a working knowledge of GHOST15 and system imaging. Symantec has also indicated that no version of Ghost will be released for Windows 10.

Validated UEFI DISKPART/GHOST process for the Venue 11 Pro 5130

Dell technical advisors have lab tested the following scripting to apply a Ghost15 image to a Venue 11 Pro 5130 in the UEFI mode:

  1. Boot to the Windows 8.1 USB media.
  2. Press SHIFT+F10 to open a command prompt. Press the ENTER key after each of the following command-line commands:
  3. DISKPART
  4. SELECT DISK 0
  5. CLEAN
  6. CONVERT GPT
  7. CREATE PARTION EFI SIZE=100
  8. FORMAT QUICK FS=FAT32 LABEL="SYSTEM"
  9. ASSIGN LETTER=S
  10. CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
  11. FORMAT QUICK FS=NTFS LABEL="WINDOWS"
  12. ASSIGN LETTER=W
  13. EXIT

Apply the Ghost file to the second partition: %GhostDirectory%\ghost32 -CLONE,mode=prestore,src=%GhostImageDirectory%\Venue11Pro5130\Venue11_5130.GHO:2,dst=1:2 -BATCH -sure

"Mode=prestore" will only restore partitions that are selected.

"src=%GhostImageDirectory%\Venue11_5130.GHO:2" will commonly be mistyped. The trailing ":2" signifies the partition number. This will depend on the number of partitions in the image and which is the Operating System (OS) partition.

"dst=1:2" signifies the first hard drive and second partition is the target to apply the partition specified above.

After ghosting the image to the second partition, run this command to set it as a boot option. w:\windows\system32\bcdboot w:\windows /s S: /f UEFI
