Dell Latitude E-Family & Mobile Precision Reimage “How-To” Guide
Overview
The purpose of this document is to detail the required steps for reimaging Dell Latitude E-Family & Mobile Precision
notebooks with Microsoft Operating Systems.
Dell Latitude E-Family & Mobile Precision notebooks systems ship with MS Windows XP SP3 (SP2 for XP 32-Bit),
Vista SP2, or Windows 7. These images include the Dell recommended software stack and settings, drivers, and
applications which are tested and validated with the system.
Drivers and applications must be installed on Dell Latitude E-Family & Mobile Precision systems in a prescribed order
to ensure optimal performance. Failure to install drivers and applications as detailed in this document may result in
undesirable performance.
Dell provides drivers and applications that are not included in Microsoft Operating Systems. These drivers are required
to enable the new technologies and features of Dell Latitude E-Family & Mobile Precision products, including the 512e
Advanced Format HDD (See appendix –B). Reinstalled images should be built from a clean hand installed OS load and
following the steps in this guide. Dell does not recommend starting from an image built on previous generations of
products or other computer systems.
Dell recommends ensuring BIOS settings (including SATA configurations modes) are correctly set and using the latest
device drivers and applications when imaging their systems.
This “How-To” guide applies to the following Latitude E-Family & Mobile Precision systems:

BIOS
Dell recommends flashing the latest BIOS available to the system. This is posted on Dell’s driver & downloads
support web site (support.dell.com) under the “BIOS” section.
Some of the BIOS settings are critical to Operating System performance. These are as follows:
Settings  System Configuration SATA Operation
 Disabled: SATA Controllers are hidden
 ATA, Basic Disk Operation mode, does not require additional storage driver. Note:
eSATA is not functional in this mode
 AHCI, SATA bus is configured for AHCI mode (Advanced Disk Operation mode)
which offers faster performance, eSATA support, and increased battery life. This mode
requires an additional storage driver provided by Dell
 IRRT / RAID On, SATA bus is configured to support IRRT (Intel’s Rapid Recovery
Technology). This mode supports AHCI mode features as well as disk mirroring (RAID1). IRRT allows data backup and restoration. This mode requires an additional storage
driver provided by Dell
 RAID, SATA bus is configured to support RAID. This mode supports AHCI mode
features as well as disk mirroring (RAID-1). RAID allows data backup and restoration.
This mode requires an additional storage driver provided by Dell
 Notes:
o RAID support requires second hard disk drive.
-
If AHCI, IRRT, RAID On, or RAID modes are selected, Intel’s Matrix Storage Manager / Intel Rapid
Storage Technology driver must be installed in conjunction with the installation of the Operating System.

 TPM Security:
 Disabled (Default): The BIOS will not turn on the TPM during POST. The TPM
will be non-functional and invisible to the Operating System
 Enabled: The BIOS will turn the TPM during POST so that it can be used by the
Operating System
 Deactivate (Default) = The TPM will be deactivated
 Activate = The TPM will be enabled and activated
 Clear = The BIOS clears the information stored in the TPM

512e / 4KBe HDD Re-image Guidelines
1
What is Advanced Format HDD?
HDD industry is moving towards supporting higher drives capacity, to address the current limitations with the 512byte sector HDDs, the industry is moving towards the Advanced Format with 4KB sector HDDs.
The transition to 4KB sector HDDs will allow storage devices to more easily adopt larger capacities in both the
notebook and desktop space.
While hard drives will transition to 4KB sectors and to maintain backwards compatibility, current Advanced
Format 4KB HDDs, also known as 512e HDDs, will emulate 512-byte SATA communications to hosts and will
operate at 4KB.
2
How does an Advanced Format HDD impact OS Images?
Even though a 512e drive is designed to be backward compatible, most of current Operating Systems are not aware
of the Advanced Format technology. Depending on the Operating System and its service pack, some extra steps
may be required to optimize the performance of the Advanced Format (512e) HDDs and to maintain full Operating
System and Application functionality.
These extra steps could require using alignment tools to fix any sector misalignment as a result of deploying a nonAdvanced Format aware image on an Advanced Format HDD which may otherwise cause performance issues.

Re-imaging Requirements when using Advanced Format HDDs
The following are the re-imaging guidelines needed to support Advanced Format HDDs. These requirements are
dependent on which Operating System will be installed and which method of deployment will be used.
3.1
Microsoft Operating Systems Advanced Format Aware Readiness
An Operating System is Advanced Format Aware if it meets the following criteria:
o
o
o
It understands the concept of physical sector vs. logical sector
It maximizes writes using multiples of 4k bytes
Disk partition starts at the boundary of 4k sector
Not all current Microsoft Operating Systems are Advanced Format Aware (refer to the Table below). A system
configured with an Advanced Format drive and an operating system that is not Advanced Format aware can
experience sector misalignment, resulting in performance or compatibility issues.

Some extra steps may be required for re-imaging even with Advanced Format Aware Microsoft Operating
Systems, Install/upgrade to the latest Intel Storage driver

3.4 Partition Alignment Options
Partition alignment is required for older operating systems and is recommended for new operating systems in order
to insure proper hard drive performance and imaging between drives of differing sector sizes. An aligned partition
is when the starting offset of the partition is divisible by 4096 Bytes or by 8 for logical block addressing (LBA)
numbers.
3.4.1
Pre-Installation of Operating System
This section lists a few options for partition alignment pre-installation of OS:
-
Using Ghost:
Ghost 11.5 will maintain the alignment state of the Gold/Master image. If the disk image is built and
aligned on a 512e/Advanced Format drive, the clones of that image will remain aligned. If the image is
built on a 512B, Ghost command line switch {-align=1MB} can be used to ensure alignment when
deployed to any drive.
-
Using DISKPART:
DISKPART may be used to enable storage configuration or create a partition at an explicit disk offset
from a script, a remote session, or another command prompt.
Dell recommends using WinPE's (3.0 or greater) Diskpart.exe from Windows Vista or Windows 7 to
create the partitions for Windows XP installation. This will create a partition that is Advanced Format
aligned. Without PE, starting with Windows Vista or Windows 7 DVD to create the partition for the
Windows XP will create correct partitioning. On how to use DISKPART utility and how to divide the
offset value of the selected partition, refer to Microsoft KB Article 300415
3.4.2
Post-Installation of Operating System
The Paragon Alignment Tool (PAT) is a hardware agnostic tool available for download from the Dell
Support website in Dell Drivers and Downloads for your system under the SATA Drives section. This tool
can be used after an Operating System is installed to align the partitions of an Advanced Format drive.
