This is my first time DBANing my laptop. I plan to install W7 RC from a boot DVD afterwards. Is there anything I need to know? Thanks

Basically after you run DBAN, you have a blank HDD. It is pretty much like you just put a new one in there (except for the age/usage). Thus you really only need to go through the normal install method. Just pop in your burned DVD-R for Windows 7 after DBAN runs and have it boot off that DVD. Run the setup and you should be kosher. DBAN shouldn't affect the install process at all. If you haven't gotten the Windows 7 RC downloaded yet, get it soon. They are cutting off the downloads and new licenses for it on August 20th. You can get it over here off of TechNet: http://tinyurl.com/9agzvs
