Hello,

I'm trying to get DBAN to work on an HP DC5850 but it's not detecting the drives at all.

It's a standard HP bios with an AMD processor and 4GB or ram.

DBAN works on all other systems I've tried. For some reason the DC5850 won't work. (I've tried 2-3 of these machines)

Is anyone else running in to this issue?

    ** Update **

    I've done some more research across the web and found out that there are some differences between the way version 1.6 and 2.0 work which has prompted me to give 1.6 a try.

    Interestingly enough... version 1.6 works!

    So, this makes me wonder, what has been removed from 1.6 that makes it so this won't work and also why was it removed?
