Windows 7: How can I unlock my hard drive clean with HDAT2?

03 May 2013   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit


Rufus can scan and create a bootable pen drive only with the latest version of the pwhe78.iso. (With older ISOs Rufus failed to scan.) You should download the latest pwhe78.iso . I have created and tested it umpteen times. Did it again just now. Check the time of screenshots.(Rufus gives the Volume Label as CDROM for the pen drive)

I downloaded the latest version and it still says failed to scan... I do not know whats wrong with the ISO or Rufus? But I did get UBCD on my usb again, and loaded up dariks boot and nuke, then I remove my usb press enter, then it takes like 5 minutes of random numbers letters and errors just scrolling continuously to get to the interactive screen. Once I am in the screen it sees my hitachi hard drive. so for I choose the quick erase method and press f10 to start. but immediately after I press f10 it just goes black and white and starts scrolling on forever with [x.x] ata1:00 followed by some words like "failed" "error" "status" and "complete" the x.x part being a number that rises to infinity.... so I am thinking this Dban way might be the way to go as this and ubuntu I have gone the farthest with... so anybody here experienced with Dban?
