M900 - W10, how to export BIOS settings

2016-06-10, 12:37 PM

We are now migrating from Windows 7 to Windows 10.

With windows 7 we were running legacy BIOS.

 

Now with Windows 10 it is UEFI and Secure Boot on all machines before deployment of operating system.

 

I have configured the BIOS settings exactly as i wanted on one machine. (UEFI, Boot Order, Secure Boot Enabled)

Then i have used CFGWIN.exe to export my settings to a txt file

 

CFGWIN.exe /c /path:c:\settings.txt

 

Now i want to use this configuration on all other Lenovo computers, without going in to BIOS and change all settings manually.

 

So in my OS deployment i run:

CFGWIN.exe /r /path:c:\settings.txt (after that i reboot the computers and continue with OS deployment)

 

But BIOS are not set to UEFI, Secure Boot is still disabled?

 

Please help!

 

 

 

Mod:   edited title for clarity

Solved! See the solution

What version of BIOS are on?   Are all the computers on the same?

Before running CFGWIN.exe i update all my M900 clients o BIOS version FWJY49USA.

 

I found an old thread where someone said that you can not update the settings for UEFI and Secure Boot via script, but it can not be right?

I have now solved my problem.

Instead of using CFGWIN.exe i used srwin.exe to export my BIOS settings then import it on another machine.

 

That worked exactly as i wanted and all settings are imported.
