Problem: 

Certain Dell E6x30 systems, when configured for Windows 8 and UEFI boot do not correctly set UEFI boot order, resulting in a failure to boot to Windows.  This usually occurs immediately after initializing a SED, locking following by unlocking a drive.   This failure is indicated by successfully authenticating to the drive in preboot, but observing a "bootable device not found" message instead of booting to Windows. 

Applies To: 

Dell E6x30 systems, UEFI Bios mode, Windows 8.0 or 8.1 and Embassy Security Center Trusted Drive Edition version 2.10.2

Solution: 


To resolve, correct the Windows Boot Manager entry in the UEFI boot order table.
