Windows Operating System Upgrade Kits
Easy and supportable upgrades. The Upgrade kits
use O/S images (rather than manual installation) to install
the new operating system. Upgrades are done in minutes
and, since the image provides the exact settings required
for DeltaV, there is no need to spend time configuring the
O/S after the install is complete.
No Microsoft Activation Required. The upgrade kits
provide a Dell BIOS upgrade to allow the O/S install
without the need to activate the new software. This saves
time and effort in the upgrade process, as well as the
possibility that an incomplete activation could render a
workstation inoperable at a later date.
Be sure you have the DeltaV supported O/S
installed and the proper Windows license.
The Emerson upgrade kit will ensure you have the correct
Microsoft O/S we support (DeltaV is prevented from
installing on unsupported operating systems). Our kits also
ensure you have the correct Microsoft license needed to
support the version of the O/S installed. So you do not
have to worry about being non-compliant during a
Microsoft license audit.
Ordering the correct upgrade kit is easy.
We make getting the correct O/S upgrade easy. You can
order the upgrade kit direct from Emerson. This eliminates
the cost and management involved with third party
purchase orders on the project.
Windows for Embedded Systems licensing
The SE9201 Windows O/S Upgrade kits are licensed
using an Emerson Windows for Embedded Systems O/S
licensing. This is a Microsoft Windows licensing
agreement that is different from the Dell OEM licensing
used previously. This licensing does change our
supported operating systems. Windows 7 Professional
and Server 2008 Standard Edition are still the supported
O/S on DeltaV.
"Windows for Embedded Systems" is a version of the
Windows Operating systems specifically created and
licensed for vendors who are purchasing the operating
system for resale as part of a packaged solution such as
The only difference in the O/S software is the Windows
licensing. The Emerson "Windows for Embedded
Systems" O/S software is exactly the same as the
software installed with the Dell OEM license. Users will
see no operational difference in using the Windows for
Embedded Systems O/S software.
The "Windows for Embedded Systems" license effectively
changes the O/S licensing from a general purpose
computer to a specific purpose computer. As specific
purpose computers the DeltaV workstations using a
Windows for Embedded Systems license have different
license terms from a general purpose computer license.
The Windows for Embedded Systems license
introduces the following licensing requirements:
These upgrade kits using the Emerson "Windows for
Embedded Systems" license must only be used to
upgrade a DeltaV workstation and the workstation
must remain connected to the DeltaV LAN during use.
These upgrade kits may not be used to upgrade a
general purpose computer or used on computers
where DeltaV is not installed and DeltaV is not the
primary use for the computer. If the computer where
these upgrade kits are installed is retired from use in
DeltaV a new O/S license and media must be
obtained to repurpose the computer for other use.
Because DeltaV must be installed, the initial install of
the upgrade not complete until DeltaV is installed on
the computer. Once DeltaV is installed the computer
will operate as a normal DeltaV workstation
Windows for Embedded Systems can only have the
O/S installed using an image DVD. A restore image is
included with each computer. A Windows O/S install
DVD is not included. Any new install or reinstall of the
operating system must be done using an image DVD
and the O/S installed must match the version on the
Microsoft Certificate of Authentication (COA) on the
computer. An image of the computer for backup
purposes and reinstall of this image on a properly
licensed computer is permitted. The new/replacement
computer must have a Windows for Embedded
Systems license for the image to activate on the new
