Setting BIOS options remotely

2019-07-11, 13:39 PM

I have roughly 100 M920q's that I want to set up with an identical BIOS config. Whilst I could do them all manually, this will take a significant amount of time.

I looked at the Lenovo BIOS Config Tool, but this doesn't seem to apply settings from the config files to any of the several machine models I tried.

I then went to look at the Windows BIOS Setting tool. The first tool; SRWIN.exe (& x64 version) errors out with the following

StartService Error: 5
CreateFile Error: 2
Unable to get bios driver handle.

The second tool CFGWIN.exe (& x64 version) works but doesn't provide the same level of functionality as the first tool.

Please, could someone help me out, as I don't want to have to manually set ~100 PCs.

Solved! See the solution

Hi, you might want to push it out as a configuration baseline or a powershell script from SCCM.

I did this using CFGWIN.exe in the end. As I mentioned though, it doesn't have quite the same functionality as SRWIN.exe

This tool, as I mentioned, doesn't work when you import a config file. So you have to manually change each setting.
