  1. Hi,
    Installed Ubuntu on USB Hard Drive without the Grub Loader. Now I can't access it at all. I just want to reformat the drive in NTFS. I tried DOS, Bart PE, WIndows XP disk (can't access drive), HELIX sees it but can't access or format it. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks...

    Disregard, I figured it out.
    I booted off of the XP cd, deleted the partition on the usb drive then just formatted it through Windows.
