Can you please check and report what settings are present in BIOS for disk access (SATA mode?) and USB (emulation?).
Are you using any special machine properties, filesets during deployment or creation of installation set?
No special machine properties or file sets as of right now.
I am waiting to hear back from the guy who has the laptops for the BIOS settings.
I am wondering if there is some magical file set that i can check that will fix this issue .... crossing my fingers anyways =)
It's a known issue with the Dell Mini at least currently being investigated in engineering - seems to be a problem in the BIOS. But if you say some work then can you see what the difference is? BIOS version other settings?
