  • Seriously, FLICK this POS. Can't open "/proc/cmdline"...over and over and over despite MULTIPLE bios changes (Asus ROG STRIX Z270F). No OS, booted straight off CD to erase ALL connected drives. FAIL after FAIL. FLICK it, drilled a hole through one, will keep the other two for back ups. Useless obsolete GARBAGE.

  • good day i download this in did every thing right but when i hit F10 to start the wipe nothing happen i need some help please

  • Frustrating...guess it either does not work in Windows 8.1/TOSHIBA new laptop I got or am missing something. downloaded it several times and burned ISO to both USB and DVD, changed BIOS boot-order and it keeps booting into Windows......grrrrrrr.

  • Only distributed as a CD-ROM, which wastes plastic. Yes I know I can make a bootable USB/PXE from an ISO. Log file doesnt write to USB. Who has a floppy drive anymore? Finishes with full screen advertising for Blancco. Many unanswered questions in bugs/forums. No support for newer hardware No longer maintained. No longer in the spirit of open source, killed off for Blancco's commercial interests.
