  1. Run scripts apart from image deployments or scripted installs

    It would be nice to be able to run scripts (such as to configure BIOS, etc.) apart from a scripted install or image deployment. As it is we must have several deployments that have different combinations of scripts in the pre-install task area which makes things confusing and cluttered for our technicians when choosing which deployment option is appropriate. We have several image deployment options just for Windows 7 Ent. x64 alone; all of which take up space.

    • UEFI Secure boot

      UEFI Secure Boot.

      With the release of uefi pxe boots, we can now load images on our dell computers with much less interaction during the unbox. We are still forced to disable secure boot on all new systems before we can boot them.

      1. Secure boot is a prevalent security patch that negates boot malware from infecting systems. this alone should be reason for integrating secure boot loads

      2. all our equipment ships from dell with secure boot enabled under uefi, so I feel our Dell K2000 should be able to image Dell equipment out of the box without needing…

      • Template for images / Post-Installation Tasks

        we are using several images with the same order of same post-installation tasks.

        It would be great, if we could create a template with an order of post-installation tasks and attach the template to the images.

        Background: When something has to be changed / Post-Installation task has to be exchanged, every image has to be changed manually.

        When there would be a template for that, then just the template would have to be changed and all images which are using that template would get that change(s)....

        • Theme support for the web interface or provide a way to restore the old interface color scheme

          The 5.0 reskin is a huge step back from the 4.x color scheme and is too bright for my old eyes.

          A way to change the colors for the web interface or just have the ability to swap to a dark theme would be great

          • Make the isos non-windows work again!

            With the new version v4.1, ISOs not windows, uploaded KBE Manipulator, aren't loaded. Wimboot is defined as the only way to load KBEs.

            Adding a checkbox in KBE details webpage (a row in KBDB.IM_INSTALLATION_SOURCE) to set/unset the specific KBE for using memdisk instead of wimboot can be a solution. After saving the KBE, it modify the ipxe menu in the way we want the KBE to be loaded.

            This checkbox status can also be use in the UEFI mode, for hiding the se specific KBEs entries from the ipxe menu.

            something like that

            * KBE with checkbox set as a…

            • Ability to Deploy Large Applications as Post Install Tasks

              Currently the limit is 2GB I think for Post Install Task. Even with a work around of exporting, re-zipping and importing, the system does not support large applications such as Adobe CC. The only way around this is to run it from a file share.

              • K2 should detect the sysprep indicators in an image and say so in the UI.

                Since sysprepped images contain multiple indicators we could detect that and display it in the K2 UI so administrators have no question of an image's status. A bonus would be indicating the number of syspreps ran on a given image since there's a limit imposed by Microsoft.
