Scrub3.exe - IBM Secure Data Disposal Utility - Problem

D10 6493 Problem


I have a refurbished D10 6493, upon boot up get the following message:

IBM Secure Data Disposal Util 2.0
Remote Deployment Mgr 4.1
Command Code Executed
C:\Dos7|Scrub3.exe /d=all /1=2
Return Code = 0


I changed the boot sequence to CD and tried to load Win7 OS but to no avail. End up with the following message.

What changes should I make to the BIOS so I can install my OS.

Re: Scrub3.exe - IBM Secure Data Disposal Utility - Problem

What does your startup sequence look like?  Assuming you're trying to install the OS from optical, you should have the optical in front of the HDD in the startup sequence, and you might have to hit a key right after POST in order to boot the system to the DVD.


That message you're seeing looks like it might be a log from the secure erase utility.  That's a utility usually used to wipe media.  I'm guessing this is displaying because your system is booting to a blank (but formatted) HDD that's been scrubbed already.
