    Hi Samtu,

    Welcome to Help2Go!

    May I ask why you need to use DBAN (Darik's Boot and Nuke)? Anyone of the dedicated members here at Help2Go would be more then happy to help if you are not good with computers. DBAN will wipe everything from your Hard Drive leaving it completely blank.

    Here's a guide on How do I make a bootable CD or bootable DVD with the ISO file?

    To prevent disaster, please fill us in on your intentions.

    Hi Samtu,

    I didn't get an email notification when you posted in my visitor messages. I'll copy and paste what you posted below so the other members here can comment/help as well.

    Hello DonnaB thanks for the reply passing on computer, some company stuff needs removing and bank details. Have downloaded dban and burned the iso image, starts off ok but stops PCI sfc and that's it, if you can help would be great all the best Samtu.
    Could you explain in detail what you are trying to achieve? Dban is used prior to reformatting the HD. Not to remove specific files. It will completely wipe everything from your drive leaving the HD blank and ready for a fresh install of an OS. I don't think you want it for that purpose.

    Is this a work/company computer you are trying to remove files and other information from?

    Please explain so we can guide you appropriately and prevent a disaster just waiting to happen.

    Thank you,

    Donna
