Darik's Boot and Nuke: Quick Commands



You may enter these commands at the boot prompt. In each case, all disks in

the computer will be wiped automatically without confirmation.


dod Wipe all disks with the DoD 5220.22-M method.

dodshort Wipe all disks with the short DoD 5220.22-M method. (Default.)

ops2 Wipe all disks with the RCMP TSSIT OPS-II method.

gutmann Wipe all disks with the Gutmann method.

prng Wipe all disks with the PRNG Stream method.

quick Wipe all disks with the Quick Erase method.


Edit the 1fsyslinux.cfg17 file on the floppy disk to change the default

behavior of DBAN. Changing the syslinux.cfg file in the CD-R/CD-RW version of

DBAN requires remastering the ISO file.


Most people should use autonuke because the defaults for autonuke will always

be safe and sensible.


Press the 1fF417 key for troubleshooting commands.

Press the 1fF117 key to continue.
