Can someone please confirm whether Diskpart will indeed wipe a drive's Master Boot Record and ALL partitions, including hidden ones (created by a trojan)? I've heard mixed things.
I need to do a full-format and DoD wipe of an infected internal SATA HD. It's only a few months old.
A friend suggested DBAN... I downloaded it and created a bootable ISO. However, after starting it up, it's looking for USB drives, and it doesn't recognize my internal HD ("missing a driver"?). Also, based on this video, it appears that DBAN might not be able to get rid of and wipe an "OEM" partition: Using Darik's Boot and Nuke (DBAN) to totally wipe a drive (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)
Can someone recommend a bootable HD wiper which would be sure to delete/zero out EVERYTHING, including the MBR? Should I try Ubuntu in Linux? Thanks.
