Setup problem: NASFinder has discovered, but cannot communicate with the SimpleShare server

I am trying to attach my SimpleShare hard drive to my Negear wireless router (RangeMax model WPN824). 

I am not configuring any security on the router and I'm using the simplest setup possible using all of the defaults (DHCP). 

While in the Netgear Router Manager page I can see the drive.  It is assigned the IP address of and the MAC address of 00:15:58:3a:74:f0. 


When I run the SimpleShare Discovery software I get the following message: "NASFinder has detected the listed SimpleShare servers on your local network."


It tells me to "open SimpleShare online Help", but does not tell me how to get there.  So... I found you.

I bought Few HP proliant DL 380 G4 servers....they do not have any operating system...i want to install windows server 2000 but it keeps giving me a message " "Setup didnt find any hard drives...


First, make sure all your connections are secure and the BIOS is seeing your hard drives. When you start the install of Server 2000, you will see a prompt at the bottom of the screen saying if you have third party software to install press any key. (or something to that effect.) Press any key and install the needed software drives for the SCSI controller. You will need this to move forward. If you do not have the drivers, you will need to download them to a cd or usb drive to complete your server install.

Good Luck.

Use the IBM configuration disk and it should be able to prepare the server for what ever OS you need to install. If you don't have it then, try redoing RAID and reformat the hard drives and try again..You can probably hit F6 during the initial portion of the install and supply the necessary SATA drivers on a floppy and get it to install. You will probably need a USB floppy though unless your server has a floppy drive.

Insert your Microsoft Server 2003 Installation disc into the CD/DVD-ROM drive and boot the server from the installation disc. Microsoft Setup will load the files it needs to perform an installation. Press "Enter" to setup and install Windows.

  • 2 Press "F8" to accept the Microsoft License Agreement.
  • 3 Create a new partition to install the operating system onto by selecting the "Unpartitioned Space" and pressing "C." If there is no unpartitioned space, highlight and delete all of the other partitions on the hard drive by pressing "D." Set the partition size to the "Maximum Size" and press "Enter."
  • 4 Format your new partition with the "NTFS" or the "NTFS (Quick)" option. Windows setup will format your hard drive and load the installation files. Your IBM Netfinity will restart and installation will continue.
  • 5 Select language and regional setup information, then press "Next." Enter your name and company name, then press "Next." Enter your Windows 2003 Server Product Key and press "Next."
  • 6 Select the licensing mode you would prefer to use and press "Next." Create an administrative account and password and press "Next." Enter the current time and time zone and press "Next."
  • 7 Setup your Network information by naming the server and defining how it will connect through the net. Press "Next" to navigate through the network setup screens. Windows Setup will finish the installation process and provide you with a log-in screen to use your computer.
  • If you delete old partitions from the hard drive to install Windows Server 2003, you will lose all information on those partitions.

    Can't install Win Server 2008 on Acer Altos G320, it keeps asking for a driver. The Server currently has a HW RAID setup with two SATA disks and is running Win 2003.

    you need to get the drivers foryour hard drives
    and when u get to the hard drive bit of the setup click install third party raid drivers
    or install hard drive drivers
    good look ;)

    I have IBM System x3400 server and when im installing the OS it is saying “SETUP DID NOT FOUND ANY HARD DRIVES”


    Check your BIOS setting first to make sure the system is registering all devices attached. If you do not see the hard drive in the BIOS, check the cable connections and reboot the system. Once the BIOS 'see' the hard drive, you should be able to install any os that support your hardware configuration.

    Good Luck

    Server 2008 is not detecting your drives, because it does not have drives for what ever hard drive controller you are using. You will need to determine which controller your drives are attached to and load the appropriate driver during setup. I believe this system has built in SCSI and SATA controller and often shipped with add - in storage cards. Our came with a promise sata raid controller.
