Greetings,

With DBAN 2.2.6 Beta, I'm expreriencing an problem were the program will hang on "PCI (sysfs)" on my Dell Studio 1735 Notebook.

I've tried to use '-disable pci', but the use for it is unknown since I don't know what I should use before it.

    I have found on HP laptops that this is caused by the Ricoh smart card reader and e-sata ports as Windows views this as removable media and drives. Go into the BIOS and disable any of these drives and you should be able to bypass the "PCI (SYSFS)" error and DBAN the drive.
