Boot DBAN with WDS

Filed under: Client Management, Software — Tags: , , — Michael @ 13:34

1. Download DBAN (Darik’s Boot And Nuke) here
2. Download Syslinux here
3.  Create a new directory ‘DBAN’ under \REMINST\Setup\German\Images on your RIS/WDS Server (I’m working on a German system, so change language appropriately)
4.  In this directory, create a new folder ‘I386’
5. In the I386 directory, create a ‘pxelinux.cfg’ and a ‘templates’ folder
6. Extract the file pxelinux.0 (found in the syslinux-4.02.zip under the folder ‘core’) to the I386 directory
7. Extract the file ISOLINUX.CFG from the DBAN ISO, rename it to ‘default’ and put it in the pxelinux.cfg subdirectory
8. Extract the file DBAN.BZI from the DBAN ISO and put it in the I386 directory
9. Create a file called dban.sif in the templates subdirectory and put the following content in it:

[OSChooser]
Description =”DBAN”
Help =”Darik’s Boot And Nuke”
LaunchFile = “%INSTALLPATH%\%MACHINETYPE%\pxelinux.0″
ImageType =Flat
Version=”5.0”

So, it should look now like this:

10. Restart the RIS/WDS service and try it out!
