Received Errors running DBAN

Postby johnpd » Fri May 12, 2006 4:52 am

I received a number of errors when running Boot and Nuke on a 10 year old computer. I am not sure it fully completed. It did wipe the system to the point where it cannot be booted. The computer was functional before doing the wipe. I am using DBAN v 1.0.6.

Computer: Micron Millenia Plus Series B
Processor: 200mhz
Hard drive: Seagate ST34371N (SCSI) - 4gb
Removable Drive: Iomega Jaz - 1gb

1. There was no disk in the Jaz drive so I expected some message on that.
2. The Hard drive was partitioned into two 2gb partitions.

Here are the logs:

Please try the latest DBAN beta release, which has a fix for the "warning: l to %l" glitch. It is currently linked to the DBAN home page.
