Auto fill ISO list



  • Hey guys long time no see lol

    I was wanting to know if there is a way to get the boot menu to auto fill a list of .iso file’s from a folder?

    Advanced Menu – ISO – auto list

    && I think this would be hell to work out in code in the menu (at less I think?)

    Side note:
    Hey Tom & Junk hacker how have you guys been?

    Moved to Feature Requests.

    When people like @george1421 say things like “oh that’s easy, just carefully do this then this then this then this…” Chances are they can get it done within a few hours.

    I myself don’t see how it’s easily possible because not all ISOs work exactly the same. The kernels are in different directories, inits might be in different directories. Some might just flat out not work with NFS like WinPE or similar. I got a DBAN ISO to work across HTTP for instance… While the NFS method might be easy to automate for the mounting and menu entry aspects - All the ohter aspects will prove to be very difficult to script… just because there are so many differences across different ISOs.

    That and… it’s not the intention of FOG to deliver ISOs on a boot menu. The intention of FOG is to create a seamless imaging environment and to reduce the workload associated with that imaging. Anything extra is a big bonus.

    The @Developers have already provided a highly advanced boot menu editing system. That’s their way of saying “Here, use this for all that other stuff you want to do.”

    My bad. I just got back on the new forums and did’t see there is a new place for “feature request”, If you feel the need to move it than do so! Thanks

    With the new pxeMenu table in the trunk version of FOG (i.e. pre1.3.0) one could write a perl/python/php/bash script to pump this directory ISO information directly into that table with some careful scripting. This is totally possible. Then just automate the process with a cron task

    hmmmm, sounds a bit EZ but I suck at code lol
