Dell Diagnostics are designed to verify proper operation of the hardware in your system outside of a high level operating system environment. The packages in this release are designed to create bootable media from which to run these diagnostics. Both packages are capable of creating bootable USB flash drives, or CDs as well as a hard drive image file capable of being used for PXE booting or as a virtual media image with additional hardware and/or software. These packages are also capable of being used to update an existing diagnostic (utility) partition on a system supported by the package. Use CW1366A1.exe to create bootable media in Windows or CL1366A1.bin to create bootable media in a Unix/Linux environment.
Custom Instructions for CL1366A1.bin:
NOTE: In order to create diagnostic media using this package, this file must be downloaded to and executed on a system running Linux. This package can be used to create a bootable diskette set, USB flash drive, CD, or hard drive image.
