Unfortunately, DBAN won't recognise the hard disk and seems unable to work because of it.

Below is the log file and I wonder if anyone can help.

won't work on Dell Dimension 4100

I've got the same problem on a Dell Dimension 4100 (about 3 years old) with one IDE hard drive. My log file looks almost exactly the same - "unable to read partition table" may be the cause? Anybody else running into problems? I've tried on several Dells here at work and it fails to run on all of them.
