Error: Provision-pe.ps1 cannot be found


The system is missing the storage drivers.


Update PE.

  1. Download the Dell Windows PE driver pack CAB file from Dell Technologies: WinPE 10 driver pack.
  2. Extract the contents of the file into a folder.
  3. Copy the contents of \winpe\x64\storage\HHN7T_A00-00\F6\NonVMD\f6flpy-x64 (Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver) into the folder where you downloaded and extracted the file.

    The HHN7T part of the folder name could change if the driver is updated.

  4. To create a new file in the /Documents folder, run the ADKPrep.ps1 script in an elevated command prompt.
  5. From the Provision OS Bundles page, update any existing OS bundles to use the new file.

    Wait for the status of the OS bundles to change from Updating to Ready.

  6. When the Dell logo appears in the PXE endpoint, select the F12 key and then select ONBOARD NIC (IPV4).
