Hi,

The password set should be "idrive" (no quotes, lower case).

Are you using v4.0 of the HDDerase.exe program?

Kind Regards

Hi, Perhaps rather than using INSERT you might want to look into alternatives such as: SystemRescueCD ( http://www.sysresccd.org/Main_Page ) or even the Trinity Rescue Kit ( http://trinityhome.org/Home/index.php?wpid=1&front_id=12 ) These are actively maintained and include NTFS support and many oth...

Hi, From the FAQ then the password for version 3.3 should be "idrive" as there are no reported changes. If this is not working then perhaps you could contact the author to see if there are any other possible passwords. Failing that then perhaps the drive has a default password? If so then a quick go...

Hi, XOSL used to be a very good Boot Manager and would hide and unhide partitions as you wanted. Remember that Vista and XP use partitions in a different way so unless XOSL2 has been updated to support Vista it may not work correctly. In addition modern BIOS's sometimes have an issue with booting vi...

Hi,

This update to HDDErase is actually quite serious as it fixes an issue with using ATA Secure Erase commands so they actually work.

Are there any plans to release UBCD 4.1.2 with this and other updates in the near future?

Disable USB Legacy support

Hi,

Check that you have USB legacy support disabled in your BIOS setup.

Some BIOSes have a bug in them which causes memtest to write over the memory area used by the USB legacy support resulting in freezes or reboots.

Other memory tests may show the same issues.
