Add Normal Wipe to PXE Boot Menu
I was wondering if someone can walk me through adding the “Normal Wipe” option to the PXE boot menu that wouldn’t require the computer to be registered. If the option is selected and the correct password entered it would start a wipe of the machine.
Use the following guide to add the DBAN .iso to your boot menu - [url]http://fogproject.org/forum/threads/how-to-modify-the-pxe-boot-menu-to-allow-the-booting-of-iso-files.154/[/url]
you can download dban here - [url]http://dban.org/[/url]
DBAN, or Darik’s Boot And Nuke is a 7MB iso file that you can boot a computer from and its only purpose is to wipe drives on computers. It supports many different methods of wiping data, (1 pass zeros, DOD short, DOD Long etc). This is a very useful tool to have to wipe drives and very simple to integrate into the FOG PXE menu.

I’m not sure what DBAN is.
