Data Wipe Task Sequence
Wondering if anybody could shed some light?
I would like a Task Sequence in our MDT for wiping a machines HDD. I have had a look at the Standard Client Replace Task Sequence, but don't want to save/backup any data, literally just wipe the disc.
Would anybody be able to talk me through modifying this so that it works or how to create a new one.
Add command line to the task sequence diskpart /s <pathtoscript>
Script should be.
Sel dis 0
It will only zero the disk not do multiple passes.
You need to be in winpe to start the ts. Youd be better starting with a blank ts.
This is what I do aswell and it works.

Does anybody know of a way to get it to show a status indicator, as at the moment all I get is the 'Running Lite Touch Installation' window, which shows that its running the command line.
Otherwise I can press F8 at the WDS login screen and use DOS and type roughly the same command that show the percent completed, but wanted to make it quite automated, would just be handy to see how far its got :)
We just use DBAN via PXE.
@ChrisH , will that only work on Linux, or can that be configured with Microsoft WDS/MDT
We use WDS for PXE services and from this menu we can pick our MDT images or one of many utilities both DOS and Linux. It just involves changing a few files on your WDS server.

There are a few posts about it on here, can look daunting at first but I can supply you with the configs if you need.
