Unable to boot from cd's created using currently posted dban-2.2.6_i586.iso. Created a number of disks on Windows Vista using CD Creator, none are bootable. Only error indicated at boot time is:

"ISOLINUX 4.00 4.00-pre46 ETCD Copyright (C) 1994-2010 H. Peter Anvin et al reading sectors error (EDD)
ERROR: No configuration file found"

Created just one cd using earlier image (dban-1.0.7_i386.iso) and it boots and runs with no problems. Looks like something may have been left out of the latest 2.2.6 re-master.

    I can confirm this problem affecting numerous Supermicro servers. The author needs to look into this ASAP.

    For now, folks should use 1.0.7 and avoid 2.2.6 entirely.

    The 4.0.3 needs to be included into the build quickly; that's not a very useful error message from ISOLINUX and a lot of non-computer literate people are being put off using DBAN IMHO.
