What kind of computers/systems can I erase with east-tec DisposeSecure?

You can sanitize hard drives on any PC, the operating system is not a factor in the operation of east-tec DisposeSecure, however it has to be on an Intel 80386 compatible computer. The operating system can be any version of Windows (8/7/Vista/XP Home/XP Pro/2003 Server/2000/NT/Me/98/95/3.1), Linux (any distribution), FreeBSD, Solaris (except SPARC), SCO UNIX, UNIXWARE, OS/2, BeOS, etc.

IMPORTANT NOTE: east-tec DisposeSecure is distributed together with a console used to create the bootable disks and this can only be installed on Windows systems. After you create the bootable disks, you can use them to wipe computers regardless of the operating system, as described above.

SUN & UNIX system support

east-tec DisposeSecure works with any computer where you can boot a DOS operating system from a bootable disk, regardless of the operating system installed on that computer.

So, if your SUN and UNIX computers meet the condition above (be able to boot from a bootable disk containing DOS), then DisposeSecure will also work with them.

How can I make my computer boot from a floppy/CD/DVD or USB stick?

In the BIOS of your computer, search for an option that mentions about the “Boot sequence” and make the boot sequence start with “A” (for the floppy drive), or “D” for the CD-ROM drive (you may have another drive letter assigned to the CD-ROM drive) or USB flash drive/USB or the option called “Legacy USB Support”. Save the changes you have made in the BIOS and restart the computer with the floppy disk/CD/DVD/USB disk inside.

Now the computer should boot from the selected floppy disk/USB disk/CD/DVD that contains east-tec DisposeSecure.

How to change the boot order in BIOS

To change the boot order, you will need to enter in the BIOS of your computer. Different computers have different ways to enter the BIOS (setup).

Turn on your computer and then look on the screen for some text that says something similar to “Press X to Enter Startup”, where X is generally the F2 key or the DEL key.

When you are in BIOS, search for an option that mentions about the “Boot sequence” and make the boot sequence start with “A” (for the floppy drive), or “D” for the CD-ROM drive (you may have another drive letter assigned to the CD-ROM drive) or USB flash drive/USB device option. Save the changes you have made in the BIOS and restart the computer with the floppy disk/CD/DVD/USB disk inside. Now the computer should boot from the selected floppy disk/USB disk/CD/DVD that contains east-tec DisposeSecure.
