Precision 5820 and 7920 Imaging


When imaging the Precision 5820 or 7920 systems with Flex bay NVMe drives, they may require additional steps to accomplish a successful image:


Microsoft Deployment Toolkit:

  • Make sure to be using the latest version of Windows 10 Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK).
  • The system must be imaged in UEFI mode.


Download the Intel RSTe 5.3.1 driver here:

Import all drivers from the following directories:
Intel-Rapid-Storage-Technology-enterprise-F6-Driver_TV5DJ_WIN_5.3.1.1019_A03\RSTe_f6_iaStorE_win8_64
Intel-Rapid-Storage-Technology-enterprise-F6-Driver_TV5DJ_WIN_5.3.1.1019_A03\RSTe_f6_iaVROC_win8_64

  • NVMe shows as Disk 1
  • SATA is Disk 0
  • SD Card is Disk 2

System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) 2012


Some changes may need to be made in how SCCM images systems:

  • Make sure to be using the latest version of Windows 10 ADK.
  • System must be imaged in UEFI mode.
