Add Bootable ISO to K2000 boot menu?

Can anyone tell me if there is a way to add a bootable ISO to the K2000 boot menu?

I remember added an Ubuntu Live ISO to the boot menu in the April-May'ish months when I first tried testing KBox, but I can't seem to find the feature anymore.

If anyone could help me out I would Much appreciate it. Thanks.

Have you gone through the Kace Media Manager?

This is not a supported option, but post your results anyway [;)]

I realize it isn't an option in the media manager now, but I remember having the option when I testing K2k about 6 months ago. It let me upload an Ubuntu Live cd and placed it in the KBox menu that comes up after PXE booting.

I don't think I'm crazy, but I am just wondering that if the option was there (I don't think I am crazy because I distinctly remember being able to do this, it was a big selling point for us) why it has been removed?

The reason behind this is I work for a university and before we get rid of old machines on campus we wipe the hard drive with Darik's Boot And Nuke. It is a bootable ISO that can do a Department of Defense grade wipe on a hard disk. It would be nice to be able to set it as a boot environment and schedule machines to boot to this and wipe instead of manually doing it.

Like I said, I remember being able to add a bootable ISO (at least Ubuntu) to K2k, but I'm not sure why the feature would have been removed.

I know this is old, but I just posted a how-to for using Darik's Boot and Nuke to automatically wipe all hard drives as a KBE.

Hope this helps!
