  • Great instructions! Also, the PDF instruction sheet that comes with KBEM has a list of currently known working and non-working custom ISO files. - andrew_lubchansky 8 years ago
  • This seems very cool to be able to do this but why would I want to do this? Would I be able to still remote the system if I PXE to UBCD to resolve an issue? - rsm11 8 years ago
    • You won't be able to remote into a system from the K2000 using this but instead of carrying around a disk or usb stick you can pxe and have the utility readily available. This also works with Hirens and Microsoft Dart. - Timi 8 years ago
  • Anyone have any idea why I get the following error when trying to run Parted Magic? "Searching for PMAGIC_2013_08_01.SQFS...
    The PMAGIC_2013_08_01.sqfs file could not be found. Report this incident to the forum and if possible attach a directly listing of the media..." - kpm8 7 years ago
