Am having a very interesting start to moving from a history of having had laptops to desktops.
Having used DBAN (Darik’s Boot and Nuke) on Toshiba laptops, I gave this a go and zeroed my HDD yesterday (WD-SATA-500GB). Unfortunately this process may have been prematurely switched off, so ran it again today.
Am getting the msg at boot up “Verifying DMI Pool Data” “Boot from CD/DVD: Disk Boot Failure, Insert System Disk and Enter”.
Something’s really messed up here either with the HDD or some BIOS setting. I am getting some error msg’s on trying to install W7 (0x80070570, 0x00000050, 0xC000005, 0x00000019 - Bad Pool Header).
I wonder if there is a problem with the HDD now?
