basically i want to sell my dell mini 10v netbook. it is running the Ubuntu 10.10 netbook edition.
I need to completely wipe my hard drive to ensure someone who can not recover my old data.
I have downloaded the dban iso.
I am having a hard time making a bootable USB flash drive with it. I have used the default USB-creator in Ubuntu, but it doesn't let me create it. I couldn't find another program close to it.
I have also tried the dd command line. which is:
I used an empty 2GB Kingston USB flash drive. it has worked. but it actually makes the dban-2.2.6_i586.iso file into a 1.9GB file. I am not sure if i typed in the command line right, or it might be a bug. I remember i did this right doing the dd command line to upload the 8.04 Ubuntu iso before.
sudo dd if=/dev/sdc1 of=/home/kenny/Downloads/dban-2.2.6_i586.iso bs=2048
how do i make a dban bootable usb flash drive on ubuntu?
