Hello,
the OS of the Ethernet Big disk is on the hard drives, so you did erase them. This unit should only be formatted using the administration page drive format option.
LaCie usually does not give away the OS, so your option would be to close some other Ethernet Big Disk or Ethernet Disk Mini drives unto your now formatted drives.

I reformated hard drive now it cant find hard drive


when you reformat did you also redo your partion?
if not this would be the main cause of your system not seeing your hard drive.
try loading your os and when your format this time make a partion on it. there is also company that has software i think its called Partion Magic
try it or elese try reloading your os.

If IDE drives are hooked to the same controller one must be configured in BIOS as Master, and the second as slave.

I need to format an HDD for an IBM thinkpad 570e that came without one, and from what a lot of people say, it won't take windows xp pro. I don't have any other OS, so has anyone tried to do this...


Before formatting the drive ....
you will need to save your drivers on a cd/dvd disk if you dont have the original disks

Formatting the drive should be straight forward,
remove it from your machine and take it to another computer,
your IBM Thinkpad should be staight forward to reinstall even without taking your drive to another computer,I found this step easier tho....
after formatting this drive you could just insert to your machine and then reload your software from the beginning providing you have your disks,

You might have a password locked hard drive and or your bios may be locked also ,in this case replace the drive after which your new os install should give you access and functionality,
update your drivers on the internet and SP2 updates will give you hi speed usb 2.0 functionalilty.....

Good luck with the formatting,if you need help let me know,
have a great day

Operating system corrupted


Hello,
If you had bought your OS, then you would probably be having the bootable OS CD with you.
It is very simple to format your system.
Follow these steps,
1. Restart your system and go to setup by clicking the F2 key.
2. In the setup, go to boot sequence and place BOOT FROM CD at the top of the list. save changes and exit from setup.
3. Now insert the OS CD in your drive and restart the system. The system will now start from the CD.
4. This will take you to the XP setup from where you would be asked to partition the harddisk for formating the OS.
5. follow the steps given by the setup and you have your new formatted OS.
Good luck!

If it's not finding the operating system, and you'va ran the recovery cd, then the problem is going to be that the hard drive has failed and will need replaced. In order to double check and make sure it's the hard drive, run the recovery or operating system disc, and reformat the hard drive. If the hard drive will not format, then it's bad.
