Below you will find Driver CABs for Dell Enterprise class systems (Latitude, Optiplex, Precision) to be used to simplify OS deployments on those systems with deployment tools like Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (ConfigMgr/SCCM) or Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT). System CABs for Venue, XPS, Latitude, Optiplex, and Precision Workstations - are designed for deployment to a single model and are developed and supported by Dell
WinPE CABs are designed to provide required drivers for WinPE to boot a Dell Latitude, Optiplex, or Precision Workstation for the purpose of OS Deployment.
Combo CABs (bottom of the page) are designed for deployment to multiple models and are developed and supported by the Dell TechCenter community. The links below will provide additional details on the CABs and a link to download.If you are new to Dell Driver CABs, please check out the .CAB File Documentation and Walk-Throughs or the Win 7 Deployment videoYou can also access the System CABs from http://support.dell.com -- Select Drivers & Downloads, and enter the system model. You will find the supported driver .cab file in the "Systems Management" section under "Driver Pack".Driver CAB's are grouped by product family and are listed with the most recent products at the top.
The Driver CABs are updated based on a release schedule which updates newer systems more frequently. New CAB download pages will include Delta Reports on what has changed in the CAB.
NOTE: Windows 8 CABs for older systems will be reviewed periodically to see if there are new drivers required. It is currently expected that Windows 8 will contain the drivers required for those systems.
I have downloaded the XP drivers for the Dell Latitude E6420, E6220, Optiplex 790 and Precision 4600 without issue. I have a task to build a XP WIM image via MDT and use this WIM in the SCCM OSD task sequence I’m working on for a project.
Latitude E6420 XP Driver CAB
The issue I have is once I create the WIM via MDT on a virtual such as VMware or Hyper-V and add the SATA drivers to the sysprep.inf and the OemPnPDriversPath="\Drivers\NET;\Drivers;C:\Drivers" section it will not load the drivers during XP mini setup and blue screens and says UNMOUNTABLE VOLUME. I’ve set the BIOS on the E6420 to ATA, SATA and still have the same result. It seems R291722 A07 release of the STORAGE driver is not what the actual hardware is using maybe? Is there a different SATA driver for MDT/SCCM OSD than the one listed on the site above for hte E6420, E6220, etc? And does this section below look right on what should be used before running sysprep for XP??
This SATA driver (R291722) seems to be the same driver for all the models I need to target.
BuildMassStorageSection = Yes
Trying to create package for E5520, but getting this error.

The combo pack *still* contains the flawed ATI driver that, when deployed with the 790, causes just about everything to crash. The XPS 13 drivers, promised in a CAB file on this website, aren't here yet.
Also looking for the Dell XPS 13 cab. Even if it cannot be supported fully as an enterprise system, at least could someone compile the drivers? It is difficult to do with the exe forms available on the enterprise support site.
Drivers for the OptiPlex 390 are NOT in the DT 1.0 package.
Has anyone integrated the USB 3.0 driver into WinPE for SCCM OSD of the XPS 13? If so, could you point me in the right direction. Thanks
ETA for Precision Workstation T3600 Driver cab?
Drivers for the OptiPlex 790 are NOT in the DT 1.0 package.
Feedback on Latitude Exx30 x86 cab files. Via SCCM OSD...the Intel video driver Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000, 02/01/2012,220.127.116.1139 had odd choppy video behavior when the MS logo appears on bootup and it would hang up on black screen never show logon screen without doing a hard reboot. I had to update the Intel video driver to Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000, 3/26/2012, 18.104.22.16812.
my work are starting to purchase XPS Ultrabooks. Can you do Driver packs for the latest XPS ultrabooks?
E5500 A01 had drivers for Windows 7 x64 & x86. now A02 is only x86. Why?
The touchpad driver is missing from the XPS 13 .cab file. Is this intentional?
Yes, the touchpad driver was left out intentionally. Details here. en.community.dell.com/.../dell-xps-driver-cabs-are-now-available.aspx
I'm new to this forum so forgive, (and advise) if I should post this somewhere else. What "XP mass storage controller driver" are you guys using for the E6430, E6530, and Optiplex 9010 and is it working? I'm running SCCM 2007 R3 for OSD and the mass storage driver in the latest XP drivers cab is not working on any of the aforementioned models. No issues when deploying Win7 but I'm finding no joy adding these models to my XP task sequence. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
For the Exx30's it should be
For RAID (Device ID is VEN_8086&DEV_282A…)
Driver – "Intel(R) ICH7R/DH SATA RAID Controller"
Model - "Intel(R) Mobile Express Chipset SATA RAID Controller"
For AHCI (Device ID is VEN_8086&DEV_1E03…)
Driver - "Intel(R) ICH7R/DH SATA AHCI Controller"
Model - "Intel(R) 7 Series Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller"
