Make the K2000 Media Manager check for existing KBE name before compiling WinPE
Backstory: We just got a new computer based on an Intel Sandy Bridge CPU and I have to create a new KBE for it. By mistake I uploaded drivers to the windows7x64 folder rather than the kbewindowsx64 folder, then created a new KBE. Of course it didn't work, then I realized my mistake. I then deleted the new KBE, uploaded the drivers where appropriate, and recompiled WinPE. At the end of the process, I got an error message saying the KBE name already exists and to please choose another one.
So firstly -- since I deleted the first KBE I made, why does it linger somewhere in the database preventing me from creating a new one with the same name?
Secondly -- why does Media Manager not check for name availability BEFORE wasting 20 minutes compiling the ISO file?
This suggestion was completed in version 6.0.
Thanks! I did figure out how to delete the useless KBE I had created, after posting this comment, kind of happened upon it by chance. But it's good that Media Manager will check for an existing name ahead of time!

You can't delete a default boot environment.
If it is not default, delete it from the Deployments>Boot Enviornments.
Then under Library>Source Media, delete from there.
There is already an enhancement request for this as well, so hopefully you'll see this coming :)
