I had problems with it. It would hang at the PCI (sysfs) detection. To get DBAN to successfully boot, I had to disable the SD media card reader.
Version tested: Darik’s Boot and Nuke 2.2.6 (Beta)
- it’s free!
Things I didn’t like:
- having to disable the SD media card reader in BIOS.
- the estimated time is wildly inaccurate.
Initial estimate 2hrs, actual time taken: 3hrs 17min
- Ran in “autonuke” mode.
(DoD Short method, 3 pass and then verify on last wipe)
- Apparently there is a USB installer, like the one the Active@ Killdisk product has.
Couldn’t find it.
