Non-Fatal Errors!


New Member
I know this has been asked before, but nothing I've found seems to be relevant.

So, I've used DBAN before (on a DELL PC with IDE drives) but now I need to wipe a Samsung HD501LJ SATA HDD on my rig with a Gigabyte P35-DS3R board.

When I use 1.0.6 or 1.0.7 I get to the boot menu, press "enter" and the process starts and abruptly finishes with "DBAN finished with Non-Fatal errors" and saves the log file. If I use the April '07 BETA, I can select my drive and nuke method but as soon as I initiate the wipe, I get dumped to the same error screen.

The only thought which comes to mind is that DBAN does not have the appropriate driver for my SATA controller, but I've never had a problem running any flavour of Linux on it.

I've attached the logs for 1.0.6 and 1.0.7, I don't have one for the BETA.
