In case you already use a custom PXE server and/or need to update the ISO in any kind of PXE server (WDS, Linux iPXE or FOG) you need to follow below steps. 


1. Download the latest version of WipeDrive.
https://download.whitecanyon.com/wipedrive/wd-enterprise-dongle.iso 


2. Open the ISO with a tool like UltraISO and, if needed, take out sample-wd-options.cfg and change the settings and put it back in the ISO. If you already have a changed version of the wd-options.cfg please put this in the ISO. 


Here you can find more information on how to change the config files:

3. Via UltraISO you can now copy isolinux.cfg and grub.cfg to your desktop. 




4. Open one of the files with notepad++ and make the following changes. Bear in mind it has to be change in both files, but work only in 1 at the time. 


You need to add this line on all the same blocks, in both files:

remote_iso=http://<IP>/<folders>/<Filename>


<IP>: The Static IP of the PXE server

<Folders>: The folder structure in the server where the ISO is located like /Images/wd/

<Filename>: The exact name of the ISO, like wd-enterprise-dongle.iso 


Example:

remote_iso=http://10.10.10.1/Images/wd/wd-enterprise-dongle.iso


Add this to isolinux.cfg and grub.cfg as shown here: 


isolinux.cfg 

Here you find some blocks of text, same as shown here.


LABEL WipeDrive

MENU LABEL WipeDrive

KERNEL vmlinux 

APPEND initrd=initrd  acpi_sleep=s3_bios,s3_mode quiet splash console=tty1 cdroot libata.allow_tpm=1


Which will be: 


LABEL WipeDrive

MENU LABEL WipeDrive

KERNEL vmlinux remote_iso=http://10.10.10.1/Images/wd/wd-enterprise-dongle.iso 

APPEND initrd=initrd  acpi_sleep=s3_bios,s3_mode quiet splash console=tty1 cdroot libata.allow_tpm=1


Do this for all the lines "KERNEL vmlinux". 


grub.cfg

Here you find some blocks of text, same as shown here.


menuentry "WipeDrive" {

    

    linux /isolinux/vmlinux silent splash console=tty1 cdroot libata.allow_tpm=1 

    initrd /isolinux/initrd

}


Which will be:



menuentry "WipeDrive" {

    

    linux /isolinux/vmlinux remote_iso=http://10.10.10.1/Images/wd/wd-enterprise-dongle.iso silent splash console=tty1 cdroot libata.allow_tpm=1 

    initrd /isolinux/initrd

}


Do this for all the lines "linux /isolinux/vmlinux"


Save both the files and put them back on the same location as where they are copied from.
