#49 HP/Compaq DC5800 problems

performance (5)

Affected Platform: HP/Compaq DC5800 with a SATA CD and a 160 GB SATA hdd, CPU is a Core2Duo, default bios params.

With dban 1.04 and 1.07 the erasure speed goes down to unacceptable 3 MB/sec within 1 min after programn start, independent from the selected erasure method. Version beta 2.2.6 crashes immediately after starting to erase with the err msg "finished with non-fatal errors". The problem was reproducable on 2 different DC5800. No solution found.

    I am also having problems with version 2.2.6. I either get a non-stop scrolling error message, or the pc simply bypasses booting from the CD-ROM.

    Wanted to verify that I am seeing the same issue on 4 different HP DC5700's running 1.07. I tried 2.26 and get a 'Sector Error' message that repeats before I even get to a boot&nuke screen.
