Hi!

I'll soon upgrade my system with Maximus VI Hero MB and I have multiple SSDs from which I would like to erase two Intel SSDs (Intel X25M 160GB).
Using ASUS Secure Erase SSD requires compatible SSDs. Are those listed in document  M6H_devices? I could see in this document a qualified list of SSDs there but it is missing most of the Intel SATA3Gbps devices.
Or is there somewhere a specific list of SSDs compatible with ASUS Secure erase?

Thanks, I can see it now. It was not there week ago :D. Though, none of my three Intel SSDs are listed: 2pcs X25M-160GB, 1pc SSD 330-180GB :(.

Hi Xenofin,

You can perform a "Secure Erase" in Windows DiskPart too.
Enter Command Prompt and type:

DiskPart <Enter>

DISKPART> list disk

DISKPART> select disk 0 (disk 0 is the SSD to be cleaned in this example).

DISKPART> clean all

DISKPART> DiskPart succeeded in cleaning the disk.

DISKPART> exit (exit DiskPart).
exit (exit Command Prompt).


If you don't have a system running, you can boot Win7 installation DVD and at the first display, "Select Language", press Shift-F10 to enter Command Prompt.

These Secure Erase functions are like software (well, BIOS based software to be more exact), and should work in theory for all devices.  To my understanding the devices listed on the QVL are just the devices they have handy to test their features with.  I'd believe your SSD should work even if they don't appear on the list.
