New SCCM System packages for Latitude 5480 and 7280

This question has been answered by Pramod-Dell

Hi:

Is there any ETA to have Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 SCCM System packages for the new Latitude models 5480 and 7280?

I am only being able to find Windows 10 packages.

Regards

Nilton

  • Don't those models only come with 7th Generation Intel Kaby Lake CPU's? If so, Windows 7 isn't supported.

  • I don´t think so, since there are Windows 7 and 8.1 drivers available individually on Downloads section for each model. Those are also coming with Skylake that supports Windows 7.

  • Hi,

    We bought few laptops 5480 but I cannot deploy our windows 7 with SCCM as you. It's really annoying, we don't want to install our new laptops manually.

    @ DELL SUPPORT : please make the cab for Windows 7 available as soon as possible. Each year, it's the same things.

  • I highly doubt that Dell will release a CAB for these as they really don't want businesses deploying anything less than Win 10 on these machines. If you check other models using this gen of processors you'll see that they lack Win 7/8/8.1 drivers also.

  • Hi Pramod,

    Any luck so far? Also will it be made available to Dell Command Suite SCCM extension as well?

    Thanks,

  • Hey Pramod,

    I found the driver packs on your site last Friday.  

    I'm having an issue though.  I have not been able to get the touchpad drivers to work on our 7280, 7480 and 5480 laptops.  They all the Skylake processors and are running Windows 7 Enterprise  x64.  We are using MDT 2013 to install the drivers for each hardware model, but for some reason the touchpad doesn't work.  When I upgrade from Win7 to Win10, the touchpad works fine.  And in the BIOS, it also works.  This leads me to believe it's a driver conflict or installation order issue.  When using MDT, most of our drivers are installed via PnP.  While troubleshooting, I'm able to "kind of" get the touchpad to work, but it is very laggy and stops working after a reboot.

    Any thoughts or known issues?

  • Hello FWOO 

    We did not come across this issue, Can you please extract Driver Pack content and try update touch pad driver manually using device manager?   

    Thanks

  • Yes Nishant,

    Driver packs are available now and support for SCCM also expected. 

    Thanks
