    I have Mac PowerPC G4 laptop. I downloaded and burned, without mounting or opening, dban 2.0.0 powerpc.iso file. the file boots fine from the CD, recognizes the hdd and it toggles the <wipe> message with the space bar, but then I press f10 and nothing happens. I tried all other keys and no luck. same blue screen with the options visible but the statistics are stubbornly blank. any ideas?

    same problem on my side. II want to decommission my old iMac. DBAN boots & works perfectly fine until the final step: press F10 to start. Nothing happens although everything is fine. Any ideas e.g. use a windows keyboard instead of the Mac one? Hints are very much appreciated.

    Try "fn" key and F10, my laptop, windows, wouldn't run with F10 untill I used the function key.
