9. After configuration, click Finish to close the wizard and then remove the configured
USB key for use (you will now use the configured USB key on the source device before
using it on a target device later).
STEP 2: Use the Configured USB Key to Copy/Pull the Firmware from the Source Device
In this step, you will boot your source device from the configured USB key so
that the USB key will pull the contents from the source device onto the USB
Be sure your source device has the configurations you want to pull and use
on other target devices.
1. If you are changing the BIOS Setup Utility on the source device (for example, you are
not using the recommended one-time boot menu process because your device does
not support the one-time boot menu option), at this time you must configure the source
device to boot from the configured USB key as described in "How To Configure Your
Device to Boot from a Configured USB Key." If you are using the one-time boot menu
(recommended), you can skip this step.
2. Power off the source device.
3. Attach the configured USB key to the source device.
4. Power on the source device and boot from the configured USB key. If you are using the
recommended one-time boot menu process, at this time you must follow the one-time
boot menu instructions as described in "Most Users: Using the One-Time Boot Menu to
Boot from a Configured USB Key" (for most devices, press and hold the P key, select
the USB drive option that is displayed for your BIOS version, press Enter, and follow
the process prompts). CAUTION: If you are using a Wyse T50, use the instructions in
"T50 Users: Using the One-Time Boot Menu to Boot from a Configured USB Key."
5. When booting the source device from the configured USB key (to pull the contents
from the source device onto the USB key), you will be prompted to continue with the
pull process. To continue, type y and press Enter.
During the Critical Operation in Progress message, do not interrupt the
6. Once the pull process is complete, you will be prompted to remove the key. To remove
the key, press Enter and remove the USB key. The configured USB key is now ready
for push usage on target devices.
At this time you can also replicate/duplicate the configured USB key
(containing the firmware you want to push) for simultaneous usage on target
devices (by users in several locations at the same time). See "How to
Replicate Configured USB Keys."
