Upgrade Wyse 5060 to WIE10 using Wyse USB Imaging Tool (General BIOS instructions work for other units as well)

  1. First, please verify that you have a valid WIE10 license from your license vendor (If you purchased the 5060 with only the WES7P license, then you are ineligible to upgrade to WIE10). Also, this upgrade is irreversible.

2. Open your browser and go to this page and download the exe file starting with 5060 (It will say WIE10 in the notes section)

3. You have 3 options to choose from to deploy this WIE10 image:

a.             Using Wyse Device Manager

                                 I.            After the download is complete, extract the contents to a local storage location.

                               II.            Configure the thin client to register itself to WDM server.

                              III.            Register the extracted image package onto WDM server.

                             IV.            After the package/device registration is complete, follow the WDM imaging process, and start the image update task. For more information about WDM imaging process, see WDM 5.7.1 Administrator’s guide at http://downloads.dell.com/wyse/

                               V.            After the update process is complete, the thin client reboots into Windows 10 IoT enterprise, and the first boot process is initiated.

b.             Using Microsoft SCCM

                                 I.            To update a master image, deploy the Windows 10 IoT Enterprise update image using USB imaging tool ready pen drive to a single thin client.

                               II.            After the completion of update process and thin client is booted onto Windows 10 IoT Enterprise desktop, carry out image customization (if any), and run the ConfigMgr sysprep scripts.

                              III.            After the sysprep process is complete and client is shut down, the master image is captured using SCCM server and the image is deployed onto other update ready thin clients.

c.             Using the Wyse USB Imaging Tool

                                                               i.      Download USB Imaging Tool v2.1.3 from here: http://downloads.dell.com/wyse/USBFT/2.1.3/

                                                             ii.      Install the USB tool.

                                                            iii.      Insert a 32 GB or larger flash drive and format it.

                                                            iv.      Run the USB tool

Instructions on Image Push (From XML Help):

  1. Start USB Imaging Tool.

The tool displays the Image Pull screen by default.

  1. Click Image Push to display the Image Push screen.

  1. Plug in the USB drive to the system running USB Imaging Tool.
  2. Select the USB drive from the drop-down list.

If your USB drive contains other images, the screen displays the images in the Images on USB section.

  1. Select the OS architecture that you want to push to the target device. Select the following:
  • 64 bit— Select this option to push the 64 bit architecture based OS to the target device.
  1. Select one of the following options:



Add a new Image on the USB drive

Perform the following steps:

  1. To add an image from a different location, click the + icon.
  2. Navigate to the location where you have saved the image files.
  3. Select the .rsp file from the image folder. You can also select the Command XML file. For this, select the Command XML option from the drop-down against File Name, and navigate to the commandsXML file location. This file is located under a sub-folder that has the same name as the OS image folder.
  4. Click OK to add the image to the table. The image is displayed in the table.

Delete existing Images on the USB drive

Perform the following steps:

  1. Select the images displayed in the table and click the X icon. The images are deleted from the table but are only marked for deletion in the USB drive.
  2. To add an image from a different location, click the + icon. If the image you select has the same naming convention as the image on the disk, you are prompted to either overwrite the image or retain it.
  3. Select the appropriate option.

You can view the OS and BIOS check boxes selected or cleared as per the contents of the image files you have chosen. For example, if the image file contains only the BIOS configuration, only the BIOS check box is selected for that image.

If both the OS and BIOS check boxes are selected and you clear one of the check box, then that image component is not added on the USB drive.

  1. Click Configure USB Drive.

The system displays the following options:

  • Update (If target unit has WES7P)- Select this option to add or delete images to an existing configured USB drive.
  • Note: If a previous update attempt failed, or target unit does not have WES7P for any reason, chose “Setup” and not “Upgrade”-in this scenario, upgrade will fail as it will look for an existing OS-this has nothing to do with the WIE10 DPK in the BIOS.

  • Format and Update— Select this option if your USB drive is corrupted or not configured. This option will back up contents, initialize the drive and add or delete the selected image.

Select the appropriate button and proceed with the preparation.

The progress is indicated on the Overall Progress bar.

                                   I.            Boot the 5060 unit and enter BIOS using the Fireport password

                                 II.            Make sure you enable “USB Boot” under BIOS>Advanced>”Boot From USB”

                               III.            Make sure you set “Boot Mode to both” under BIOS>Advanced>”Set Boot Mode to [Both]

                               IV.            I like to disable Secure Boot and TPM just as a precaution

                                V.            Reboot the unit, enter BIOS for a second time and promote your USB drive to the top of the Boot Priority Order.

                               VI.            Reboot and let Merlin load

                             VII.            Select “Push an Image” and then enter and yes as prompted

                           VIII.            You’ll notice that once WI10 is updated, system will prompt you to do a disk check-skip this always.

                               IX.            You’ll notice that there are 2 BIOS beeps after the upgrade-this is normal as the newer BIOS implements the ePSA (from Dell BIOS) and some new beep codes.
