    Few minutes after I started DBAN (autonuke), I heard a sound like when a HDD stops rotating (i guess) and a few moments after that I got this screen:
    It now continues to work - the numbers keep increasing.
    Will my HDD's get wiped out properly after this?

      I hear a lot of people having trouble with autonuke try going into interactive mode and manually specifying your options. If it says it is erasing and you can see the percentage and write speed moving then it is probably erasing, it looks like the output of what is actually going on in the background is being laid over the graphic.
