To quote DBAN's website:
DBAN is a self-contained boot disk that automatically deletes the contents of any hard disk that it can detect.
I booted with DBAN but it failed to erase the disk. I have installed Ubuntu in it and it is still there. I booted with it three times using only 'autonuke' option because I don't know anything about the other five options given. At the end of the process I got the following message.
"DBAN finished with no fatal errors"
The following was displayed in the log:
Error : dev/sde (process crash)
Error : dev/sdb (process crash)
Error : dev/sdd (process crash)
Error : dev/sdc (process crash)
Error : dev/sda (process crash)
What can I do now? I am really keen on cleaning the disk before installing XP, although it may not be necessary to do so.
