I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

We're using SCCM to configure all our notebooks with Windows 10 and using BCU in a tasksequence to configure the correct settings. With both the 820 G3 and the 850 G3 we've run into a problem with activating bitlocker automatically. This happens because a BIOS setting, which was available on the previous models, is missing: Activate TPM on next boot: Enable Why this setting is needed is explained here. Without this option, enabling bitlocker automatically from a tast sequence fails which results in a lot of manual work after SCCM is finished. Until now, I've found no alternative to accomplish this so it seems that the new Elitebooks can't be deployed in a professional way (in a corporate setting). I hope that I'm overlooking something here or that HP will bring back this setting in a future BIOS update?

When running an SCCM 2012 R2 task sequence to install Windows 10 on a Z240, the network driver is working in Windows PE during the download and apply Windows image. I'm using Auto Apply Drivers step and after it's completed, the computer restarts into the Windows 10 OS, tries to set up the devices and then the task sequence fails because there is no network driver detected that it can use. I've tried to import multiple types of network drivers from both HP and Intel with no success. I've tried to specifically apply the Z240 driver package instead of using Auto Apply Drivers with no success. I've also tried to install a Windows 8.1 image instead and it still fails at the same point. I'm confused because it works fine in PE, but not after restarting and booting into the Windows OS. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi
I would like to upgrade the HD space in my T460p which comes with an 256GB SSD.
I purchased Samsung 950 PRO m.2 SSD.
Upon disassembling the laptop I realized that there is no place to install the NVME hard drive.
A technicial friend suggested I remove the mobile modem that occupies the PCIe slot and install the drive there, however the drive is longer than the modem and there is no way to bolt it onto the motherboard.
Am I missing something? Is there an empty PCIe slot I can use to install the additional storage?
Thanks in advance.

Dear all,

Sattelite Z series laptops cannot install OS (win 8.1) from our SCCM 2012 R2 environment.

Either no installation is starting, or pxe boot aborted error is showed.
The environment is used to successfully install OS (win 8.1) on different other vendor computers (dell) and virtual machines (hyper-v and vmware).

I've tried both UEFI and CMS boot options and tried to switch off the secure boot. Please advice.

Also, i've read about the "SCCM installation package for Toshiba". Will it help in my situation or is it just driver packages for SCCM?

Best Regards, Evgeny.

A:Satellite Z930-14F - cannot install Win 8.1 from SCCM 2012 R2 environment

I guess you are speaking about this Toshiba package:
http://www.toshiba.eu/services/on-demand/business-computing/sdp120gs-v/

I don?t have much experience using such SCCM drive package but it definitely compatible with the Toshiba business notebooks. The Satellite / Portege Z930 belong to the business range and I think the package should be compatible.
This package seems to be for all IT administrators who manage devices on the corporate network with SCCM 2012 R2. Toshiba offers with the new Toshiba SCCM package a solution to integrate other notebook into an existing IT infrastructure quickly and smoothly and all Toshiba Driver and application packages and a demonstration task sequence are integrated.

However, it seems that you could get more details about this package directly from Toshiba [email protected]

By the way: The Win 8.1 installation requires the UEFI mode (in case the UEFI BIOS is available). But booting from another, external source requires the disabled secure boot option.
So maybe you should use the UEFI mode but should disable the secure boot option in order to boot from LAN.

When System Center Configuration Manager is used to manage/push updates out to clients, the SCCM agent takes over control of the Windows Updates process so that when you manually initiate Windows Updates, the machine will check against the SCCM server,
rather than the online Microsoft update servers. When you have the option for Internet Explorer 11 to Install new versions automatically selected, will IE check for updates on the SCCM server, or will it check against the online Microsoft update servers?

Hello, this is my first post on the forum, and I hope you can help me.
I have recently been given an HP 6465b probook. It had been dropped and the hard drive had failed. I installed a new hdd and got a copy of Windows 7 ultimate x64. The install went well until I discovered I couldn't connect to the Internet. There are at least 5 drivers missing.
They are for the SM Bus controller, Broadcom netxtreme gigabit ethernet controller, Broadcom netxtreme II network controller, two unknown devices. Now I think about there may be others as well.
I checked the system 32 / drivers folder and they are all there I think.
I tried to install the drivers in the usual way but windows says it cannot find them. I tried to install them from the windows disc. Again windows couldn't find them. I connected to my router via cable to try get cconnected that way but no luck. I have downloaded drivers to cd and installed from there, but I got an error code 10 device cannot start. In sysinfo it says driver not installed properly.
So I am at a loss as to what to try next. I hope the forum can assist with this.

Kind regards,....... Amazingmin (Dean)

Hi there....

may be an idea to clean the cd/dvd rom lens and also make sure the data sides of the discs are completely clean and scratch-free. If need be buy some special cleaning solution and a lint free cloth to clean them.

As you have already tried a different hard disk drive, it's unlikely that both disks are damaged but it's still a possibility. Download the hard drive manafacturer's diagnostic software and then make a bootable cd/floppy out of it then use it to check the integrity of the drives. It may take a little while to complete if the drives have large capacities but it may be helpful in working out whats causing the problems.

The IDE cables are a possible cause too...do they have any signs of damage at all?

So, I had errors occurring in SCCM (Version 1702), and not being able to login to the SQL database, I decided it was easier to do a complete reinstall of SCCM with a new instance of SQL 2016.. However I've now got different issues that I'm having trouble resolving.

We're only a small organisation with around 300 PC's, but spread over several locations. Initially in SCCM I had the client pushed out, several DP's, and Windows 7, and 10 both being deployed as well with no issues. Since the reinstall I have been unable to get the client to install on any PC's - even new ones that have never had the client previously, I'm also unable to pxe boot.

I've distributed both the x64 and x86 boot images, enabled PXE on the DP, the options in DHCP are still there from the previous install obviously but for reference option 67 is "smsboot\x64\wdsnbp.com"

The client gets the initial boot file from the server, then instead of loading WinPE I get:

"The Windows Boot Configuration (BCD) file from the PXE server does not contain a valid operating system entry. Ensure that the server has boot images installed for this architecture"

I've read that turning off PXE on the DP, then waiting and re-enabling it will work, however it hasn't done so for me.. I wonder if this and the client not being installed anywhere are linked to the same problem.

I recently received my T460P but it seems to always "buzz" - like I can feel it vibrating under the palm rest. It seems to be where the HDD is located and sounds like there is fan there going full speed all the time which causes the whole laptop to "vibrate". Its not a lot, but I can feel it distinctly trough the palm rest and can hear it whirring away. I don think this is the HDD seek activity as if I put my eat to that part of the laptop I can hear the read/write heads moving and it sounds very different to this noise.  Is this normal? I was very surprised that such a high-end laptop has this unusual quirk. It's not the cooling fan I can hear as that's all the way over on the other side of the housing and I can clearly tell when that fan is and isnt running. Is there possibly a fan running to cool the HDD all the time? I've never known anything like that before and would be surprised that the drive would run that warm that it needs a fan all the time.  I'm also concerned what this might be doing to battery life and lifespan of the drive if it is the drive spinning at full speed all the time. The machine specs are:i7 6700HQ16GB RAM2GB NVidia 940MX500GB 7200rpm 2.5" SATA3 Any advice would be appreciated. Cheers

I'm curious how many RAM slots are available in the T460p (i7 6820HQ) and how they're used in the various RAM confiugurations available to buy. I'm assuming there are two user-accessible slots, but the configurator does not specify how many of those are used for the various RAM options.

Anyone know the answer?! Also curious if anyone has yet determined whether the empty M2 slot in the T460p can be used for an SSD. I hope so, becauuse without the Ultrabay there's otherwise no option to run two drives in the T460p, which would be a step back from the T440p.

Hi, I've tried searching for an answer but can't find one. I'd like to know what total the weight of the T460p would be with the standard 6 cell 47Whr battery. Also how much extra weight would be added by having the 6 cell 72Whr? I've tried adding both configurations to my shopping bag, but can't see anything which indicates the final specification weight. Would be nice information to have available to a potential buyer. Many thanks. Peter

A:Weight of T460p

Good question.  I was wondering the same.  Also curious how far the 72Whr battery sticks out.  Can't seem to find a picture of what it would look like with the larger battery configuration.

My T460 P does not wake from sleep. Sometimes I have to cycle power and even then after the bitblocker passphrase entry I just see a backlit screen. It does wake up and go to the login screen after a series of power button presses.

I received my new T460p today to replace my T440p.It as the large battery in the back. The T 44 has two batteries, so I could hotswap. Does the T460p only have the external battery? All programs only show me one 76 Wh battery in the system. Battery life is a bout 2.5 hours with nothing installed. I tried the hotswap and the laptop went dead immediately after i removed the rear battery. Does it not have an internal battery like the 440p? The tech specs are unclear.

Hi all,  I have the t460p shipped with a Toshiba NVME SSD - Full spec name:  THNSF5256GCJ7 Toshiba XG3 Series 256GB MLC PCI Express 3.1 x4 NVMe (SED / TCG Opal 2.0) SATA Express 2.5-inch Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Recently i had the opportunity to buy a Transcend MTS400 M.2 (42mm) ssd for cheap (90 bucks) via a friend, this means it will occupy the WWAN slot.  Question 1: Will both drives work in this scenario? Or do i have to replace the toshiba with a regular 2.5" SSD (like a Samsung 850 evo/pro) in order to also use the Transcend alongside it.Question 2: Will i get performance benefits replacing the Toshiba with a regular 2.5" Samsung 850? I have seen that user ¨otheos¨ managed to get a M2 2280 PCIe NVMe ssd working, using a adapter bracket from a T470 (M.2 2280 SSD AdapterBracket, Lenovo FRU 01HY319). If i go for this solution, the WWAN slot will be useless because it gets deactived according to his findings - so this is not an option for me.Please help me clearup some questionmarks my aim is a maximum performance setup.
