K1000 Kbox and deploying mass machines
We have setup a scripted installation to push Windows 7 x64 using a boot action. Our question is are you able to define in anyway a list of MAC's and what names you wish each of those machines to have set?
e.g. MAC #1 -> Desktop 1
MAC #2 -> Desktop 2
We would prefer limited amount of input as possible so we can just fire the machines up and have them boot automatically into K1000 to build using the scripted installation.

Sounds like you are talking k2000 pxe work to do setup. With new machines we set pxe boot as the 1st boot and then boot them once so they register into the k2000 system inventory. Then we assign those entries a work to do, reboot and they take off imaging. One of my post tasks sets the boot order back to hard drive first.
With existing machines they are in the k2000 so
1. We assign the job in the k2000
2. Do a wol and push a k1000 script to change to the boot order to pxe first and reboot.
3. They pxe boot and do the work to do, then as a post change the boot order back to HDD 1st.
