Working with new iPXE menu entries



  • Helloooooo i just updated to SVN. I cant seem to find a tutorial on how to use the menu entries. I am trying to add a dban menu entry (as I once had on .32), and i am stumped. Where do I put dban.bzi, and how do i tell it to run? Seems like a lot has changed

    yes, you can consider this solved. Thank you all for your help. You guys have been great. And I must say that FOG has come a long way since I started using it in ,29 (at least for my uses).

    I’m just throwing this out there - but I know Tom recently created a plugin for the latest FOG Trunk that allows for customization of individual tasks… I’m not writing a WiKi just yet on it… but you might play with making a task that includes a DBAN wipe then Image.

    Ask @Tom-Elliott for details. :-)

    I’ve marked this thread as solved. The reboot should’ve happened automatically once complete but I’m also not in charge of the dban system. So the ad you said was given may be added to the main program. If that is the case you may need to inform the guys at dban of what you saw/see. There isn’t a way to make a quick image happen immediately after the wipe because of the same reason. We do not control the dban system. That said you could modify the dban system to do this for you but that is entirely up to you.



  • it did not reboot. It is asking me to press any key to continue, and then it gives me an advertisement for Blancco. Then you hold the power button for 8 seconds to shut down hah.



  • thank you. that works perfectly. I am waiting for it to finish (its at 10%) and i will let you know if it will auto reboot. Question. Is there any way to run a menu item that will Dban, then reload a new OS from quick image? I imagine i will have to get rid of the quick image password (though my attempts at this have so far failed)

    I’ve just made this in the WiKi and I’ve verified that it works to the point of displaying the blue DBAN screen where it’s initializing devices.

    I’d appreciate it if you could verify that it works for you, too.

    Can you tell me if this auto-reboots? Thanks.



  • yes, there are quite a few results, but they all pertain to 1.2 and older… i cannot find anything on the new system… and the old way doesnt seem to work



  • I wouldn’t know how to do it as I have never had a need, but, If you search the forums for “dban” there are actually quite a few results.
