DBAN 1.0.6 has worked well for me, but 1.0.7 is not detecting my SATA drive correctly. While a wipe using 1.0.6 used to take 1 hour 20 min , 1.0.7 reports the same will take 19 hours. Also, 1.0.6 correctly shows my drive as SATA, while 1.0.7 shows it as IDE:
DBAN 1.0.6 shows my drive as (SCSI 1,0,0,0,-) ATA WDC WD7406d-....... ^^^^ ^^^
It has a throughput of 77,000 KB/s during PRNG wipe
DBAN 1.0.7 shows my drive as (IDE 0,0,0,-,-) WDC WD7406D-...... ^^^
It has a throughput of 4672 KB/s during PRNG wipe
My mobo's chipset is: Intel i875P + ICH5-R
I am using the .iso version.
Also, it appears that 1.0.6 is no longer available from Sourceforge :(
