  1. Wiping Hard Drive


    Hello! I just downloaded a bootable windows onto an usb stick and I from there booted up the computer from the USB stick and formatted all the disks inside the laptop. Then exitted the program. Now when I boot up the computer it just says "No operating System Installed"
    My question is, is everything wiped from the disk? and unable to retrieve the data on there? It's important since I am getting rid of the laptop.

    :)

    How to wipe a hard drive

    The best utility to use to wipe a hard drive is definitely DBAN. You can do an all-out wipe, or simply write all zeroes to the drive.
