STEP 1: Booting in DOS

Please place the bootable floppy disk or CD/DVD that contains east-tec DisposeSecure product into the corresponding drive of your system and reboot your computer. east-tec DisposeSecure will run automatically and will lead you to the first step needed to start the sanitizing process.

In order to find out how to create bootable devices, please refer to Create bootable floppy/CD/DVD/USB disks.

Running east-tec DisposeSecure from bootable devices allows you to run the product on more than one computer at the same time, without having to install the product on each computer. This way, you can save a lot of time and do your job more efficiently. This is particularly helpful when you have to sanitize a large number of computers and you have a deadline for getting the job done.

NOTE: For more functionality, you can use the command-line parameters, giving you more flexibility and being able to run the wiping process without actually having to run through the user interface. (e.g. you may run east-tec DisposeSecure in silent mode, requiring no user intervention and/or no user intervention is allowed). For more information about the command-line parameters, please read the COMMAND-LINE PARAMETERS section. To locate this section, use the table of contents from the beginning of this file.
