Question about Buffalo Technology (USA), INC. - 500GB DRIVESTATION EXTERNAL USB 500 GB Hard Drive
I stupidly reformatted the disk in an effort to overcome some recovery problems I was having. Now the system doesn't recognize that the disk exists. Is there any way to recover from this disaster?

You can install Windows XP by booting off the Windows CD. You should be able to go into the BIOS, usually just hit the Delete key at start up, and change the boot sequence so the machine looks for the DVD/CD driver before the hdd. Once the installation is complete be sure to remove the CD, you should get a message to do so and go back into the BIOS and reset the boot sequence so the Floppy is first if you have one and then the hdd. If no Floppy, just set the hdd as the first boot device. Laptops work pretty much the same way as PCs. You'll need the drivers that came with the laptop, should be on a CD. To save time you can download the latest drivers from the mfg website, put them on a CD and install them, saves the time of up dating them
