• Re-image the thin client to restore all factory default settings using the Dell Wyse USB Imaging Tool or WDM, For more
information, see Imaging Devices with the Dell Wyse USB Imaging Tool, and WDM Software for Remote Administration.
Preparing to Re-image
The thin client can only be returned to factory defaults by re-imaging the thin client, the same process used when upgrading the
firmware. The re-imaging process requires:
•A clean image — Go to www.dell.com/wyse/downloads, select the active product download you need images are device
dependent; be sure to select the correct model you want to re-image, and then download the files. Note that these files are
normally in a compressed (.zip) format and will need to be extracted or executed, if in .exe format before use.
•Imaging software — Dell provides two imaging software products to re-image your thin client:
– Dell Wyse USB Imaging Tool —recommended for smaller environments.
– Dell Wyse Device Manager (WDM)—recommended for larger environments.
