Hey there friendly folk! We got a bunch of Samsung 700T slate PC’s in, and I wanted to push BIOS updates in my SCCM task sequence. Here’s how it’s done!
- Download the BiosUpdate.exe utility from the Samsung Support Site.
- Run the utility on your slate and let it download the latest bios file. At the time of this post, the current filename was “ITEM_20120620_556_WIN_10FW.exe”.
- Please the BIOS file in your preferred package directory.
- In SCCM, create a ‘run command line’ action with the following settings. Change the BIOS version in the WMI query as needed.
If all the conditions are true: select * from win32_computersystem where Model like "700t%" select * from WIN32_BIOS where SMBIOSBIOSVersion < "10FW"
Package: <Your Samsung BIOS Updates Package>
I haven’t yet figured out how to push specific bios settings or a BIOS password unfortunately. If you crack that nut, please leave a comment or send me a link to your blog post!
