    Dell is moving away from the legacy USBFT Tool to re-image their devices; now, you can use their Dell OS Recovery Tool to reimage OptiPlex 3000 Thin Clients.

    Steps to re-image:

    1. Download Dell OS Recovery Tool at https://www.dell.com/support/home/en-us/drivers/osiso/recoverytool
    2. Run the .exe file on the system to create the USB drive.
    The Dell OS Recovery Tool Application installer opens.
    3. Click INSTALL.
    4. After the installation is complete, open Dell OS Recovery Tool.
    5. Select SWITCH TO ADVANCED RECOVERY displayed at the bottom of the tool.
    6. In Select an OS image, browse to the ISO file you downloaded and click NEXT.
    7. Select the USB drive that you want to format from the USB drive dropdown.
    8. Check “I understand that the selected drive will be reformatted and existing data will be deleted” box.
    9. Click BURN OS.
    10. Remove the USB drive and connect it to the system powered off on which you plan to install ThinOS. After connecting the USB drive, turn on the system.
    NOTE: After the USB drive is removed, Dell OS Recovery Tool returns to the screen displayed in Step 5.
    11. Press F12 at boot up until you see the Dell logo and Preparing one-time boot menu… displayed at the top right corner.
    The boot menu opens.
    12. select the USB drive from the UEFI Boot Devices list in the boot menu.
    NOTE: If you cannot select the USB drive, ensure that Enable USB Boot Support option is enabled in BIOS.
    13. Enter the BIOS password if prompted. The default password for most Dell thin clients is Fireport.
    14. The thin client boots, and a warning message with a 60-second countdown window is displayed.
    Wait 60 seconds or click OK to install the ThinOS image and application packages. The thin client reboots automatically.
    Click Manually to display the ThinOS image and application packages list. Select the ThinOS image and the application packages you want to install, and click OK to install these files. The thin client reboots automatically.
    15. The system continues imaging and reboots automatically once complete.
    NOTE: If you see the error “Fatal Error: Please make sure TPM or PTT is set to ON in BIOS.”, please turn TPM or PTT on in BIOS to continue the installation.
