Some organizations base their erasure processes upon booting WinPE. Additionally, certain devices (such as some running Intel Atom processors) fail to boot Blancco Drive Eraser. In both of these situations, you have the option of using Blancco LUN Eraser to securely erase the drive on the logical layer. This is accomplished by downloading a special Windows PE image which has been preconfigured to contain Blancco LUN Eraser inside of it. Download the image from here.

In case you wish to configure and build your own personalized WinPE ISO image, see the detailed instructions in the following Quick Start Guide. Note: You will require an integration package from Blancco to be able to embed Blancco LUN Eraser within the ISO:

The ISO can be burned onto a CD or used on a bootable USB stick.

When you boot a device from it, you will briefly see the Windows logo, followed by a blue background with a standard Command Prompt ready for use. Your starting location in the Command Prompt will be X:\Windows\System32Navigate back to the X: root and then into the Blancco folder. From here, Blancco LUN Eraser can be used to target and erase the drive for secure erasure.

For more information, see the following user manual. Note: Blancco LUN Eraser will need to be pointed to the Blancco Cloud or towards your own local installation of the Blancco Management Console. To do this, see page 21:

LUN Eraser doesn't have GUI and is fully controllable through the Windows command prompt and erasure can be started directly from the command line.
