After a desktop or laptop is decommissioned and ready to be recycled, we run DBAN from a CD to erase the disk. Is there a way to create a task in MDT 2012 that would allow us erase the disk through a network boot rather than having to put the cd in?
I does not even have to be DBAN, anything that is just as good or better to erase the drive.

I just run a custom task sequence to call a diskpart script from the diskpart folder in the root of my DS -
first run command - diskpart /s "z:\diskpart\diskpartcmd.txt"
then i run a restart computer...thats it..unless you need even more secure wipe then continue with dban or gdisk from ghost.
select disk 0
create partition primary
format fs=ntfs quick label="WindowsOS"
select partition 1
select volume 1
attributes volume set nodefaultdriveletter
just change clean to clean all and it will write zeros to the complete hard drive for you..
Just for fun I got it to work in my test lab, pretty straight forward. You will need this update link...
6. Extract the file pxelinux.0 (found in the syslinux-4.02.zip under the folder ‘core’) to the I386 directory
is now located in bios/core on the new builds.
