DMI Settings Dell Latitude E6400?

Hello

I trie to encrypt my Dell Latitude E6400 Notebook with FDE (ZCM 11.2.1MU1).
By default, there is no entry for this hardware.

So I set some entries in the following order....

First attempt:
[Dell Inc.,Latitude E6400]
DMI_SYS_VENDOR=Dell Inc.
DMI_PRODUCT_NAME=Latitude E6400
KICKSTART=KEXEC
KERNEL=/boot/bzImage-acpi

Result: Frozen PBA Window (Windows will start ind 10 Seconds...)

Second attempt:
[Dell Inc.,Latitude E6400]
DMI_SYS_VENDOR=Dell Inc.
DMI_PRODUCT_NAME=Latitude E6400
KERNEL_PARAM=pci=snb-enable-ahci-to-legacy

Result: Blinking cursor on a black window after PBA! Nothing more...

Third attempt:
[Dell Inc.,Latitude E6400]
DMI_SYS_VENDOR=Dell Inc.
DMI_PRODUCT_NAME=Latitude E6400
KICKSTART=BIOS

Result: Frozen PBA Window (Windows will start ind 10 Seconds...)

Is there anyone who knows the correct DMI-Settings parameters?
Thanks for reply..

You don't have to have an entry in normal cases, so did you try the policy without making any entry in the dmiconfig part of the policy? So I'd remove all the entries you've added for the E6400 and try the policy again.

Hello,

I solved the problem. I set the Bios "SATA Operation" below "System Configuration" from IRRT to AHCI.
The next attempt with following settings worked well:

[Dell Inc.,Latitude E6400]
DMI_SYS_VENDOR=Dell Inc.
DMI_PRODUCT_NAME=Latitude E6400
KERNEL_PARAM=pci=snb-enable-ahci-to-legacy
