  1. is the disk containing dban bootable?

  2. have you set your BIOS to boot from DVD drive as first boot device.

Why do you want to use dban to clean your drive it will wipe everything including the operating system?

You may need to change your BIOS to legacy boot before you can set it to boot from the DVD.

Otherwise the EFI boot will always try and boot from the Hard drive.
