HP Elitebook 2560P Fails to write Image-Safe Data

Hi,

Anyone else having issue with HP Elite-book 2560P fails to write Image-safe Data. We have this Notebook and also have the latest BIOS 68SSU Ver F.02 Dated 26/07/2011. If there are any work around love to know.

ZCM Version we run is 11

Regards,
Kuru

Re: HP Elitebook 2560P Fails to write Image-Safe Data

Hi I found how to fix this it was due to Hard Disk having some Data some where needs clearing first. I found a link talks about something like bellow.



If the data in sectors 6-63 is not required, then to clear the space,at the bash prompt issue the following command:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/hda bs=512 seek=5 count=58
N.B. for SCSI or SATA, use:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda bs=512 seek=5 count=58
Be very careful to get the syntax correct when issuing "dd" commands on disks that contain data, as using the wrong parameter may erase all of the data on the disk.



Once space has been "cleared", when the machine is next booted, ZISWIN will be able to write the Image-Safe Data

Kuru
