Hi,

After the Iomega HMNHD gave up (updating the latest Firmware Version 2.104) I was not able to get things right following instructions on the site "Installing firmware on a new disk (Home Media)". After a while I was not able to access Ubuntu 12.04 where I was trying to solve the problem, because of the HD blocking the access. So I used WIN7 to wipe everything from the drive. I started to create the partition with file type ext3, which gives a warning that the file type must be ext4. What I need are the steps to create the structure for the nas drive. I hope you can help herewith.

Thanks in advance

Thnks emiralles for your reply. My problem is maybe a bit different from the Installing Firmware on the site you pointed out. I assume that the partition table is GPT (Raids). As I am using ubuntu 12.04, the system does not allow me to use fdisk GPT instead it allows gdisk GPT. The question is what distro need to be used to follow the firmware installation you're directed to.

Hi,

I used a Live USB Stick made with Lili USB Creator (http://www.linuxliveusb.com/) and Knoppix 7.0.5 . It worked perfect.

I was able to solve the problem by using gdisk instead of fdisk to create the xfs partition and set it to type fd00 using Ubuntu 12.04. I then followed the instructions given for the firmware installation. The file type created is ext2.

Thank you all for your support.
