I have an old Lacie 120Gb HD and I can not see the drive on my Vista laptop. I have not used the HD for about three years and it may have been used on a Mac system previous. The blue light does come on. The sn is 013334255. Was there some special software that I need to read this drive?
Try right clicking Computer (in the start menu or shown on desktop as "My Computer") and clicking Manage. Then when that pops up, jump into Disk Management (left hand side). See if it shows up there. Often it can just be the fact that you need to right click the drive and click "Change drive letters". Post back if it doesn't show up there and we can try some other troubleshooting.
You could also try checking to see in Device Manager (also in that manage screen to the left bit) and then click Disk Drives and see if it shows up in there at all.

This drive showing as not supported for Linux as you mentioned. Usually this is due to the board inside the enclosure. You could crack open the case and mount the drive internally which would resolve this issue. Otherwise you are down to trying to find a driver (not made for this model) that will be recognized by your system.
Try Start > Run (aka Search in Win 7) type dskmgmt.msc. Look for your drive there. Right clicking will give you the options of initializing, creating disc partitions, assigning logical drives, and formatting.
I am not sure what you mean by "slow" so I will anwer in general terms. I would recommend 1st that you make sure the PowerEdge meets the recommended hardware specs for Windows Swerver 2003. (Memory, CPU speed, Hard drive capacity, etc.) 2nd- I would run two Xeon processors instead of one and add as much memory as you can put in your system.
I run MS Server 2003 on one of my servers and here is the configuration that I am using: 2 Xeon 2.8GHz processors 6GB ECC Memory 120GB hard drive for the server operating system (Nothing else is on this drive) 750GB hard drive for all other applications External NAS storage for files, data, etc. (connected to my netword via Ethernet 5e)
With this setup, my server has been running very well for 6 years now. I do maintanance every week on it to keep it up to par. (Simple dusting, checking cables, etc.)
Welcome to Fixya. if your External drive is not detected by your Ps3 console you need to format it and select Fat32 File system. Ps3 will not recognize external harddrive using NTFS Format make sure you format the drive using Windows XP or Windows 7. Windows Vista dont have Fat32 but Exfat File format. After you format the drive to Fat32 make sure you create a folder like Music, Photo, Video and other forlders so that it will be detected by your console.
u must either have one of the foll...to boot and install OS...also the seq in BIOS must be availabe and enabled
2 CD Rom Drive - internal
3 CD Rim Drive - External connected thru USB
4 You can also try to connect a USB pen drive having the OS install program and try - I have not tried that so not sure if this option works...sorry
5 If u can open the machine then u can connect another internal HD(this can contain ur OS install files) to the cable (connector points in the flat cable) that connect your internal HD to the Motherboard.
if i can think of anything else i will post
all the best
