This is how I secure erase the SSDs I use in our test platforms.

I’ve tried Hirens’ boot CD too. mini xp doesn’t show the HD. last thing I did was erasing disk with parted magic. (with ereaser disk— internal method)
made a mistake, am I?

I/O errors like that tend to mean that the drive is dying, or the SATA cable is bad. Are you doing this on a drive that’s also hosting the OS? What distro are you using?

It was at one time correct, but for some reason WordPress insists that if you write a double dash, you must really want one single long dash. It even does that if you hardcode the exact HTML entity for two separate dashes.

It’s correct in the screenshots, though.
