    Hi,

    I have a Kimsufi L box and ordered 500GB USB drive, that is supposed to be installed already.

    I'm following this guide to install it: http://help.ovh.co.uk/usbdisk

    But when I run

    sfdisk -l

    I cannot see the /dev/sda

    Code:
     
    sudo sfdisk -l
    [sudo] password for admin:
     
    Disk /dev/hda: 30401 cylinders, 255 heads, 63 sectors/track
    Units = cylinders of 8225280 bytes, blocks of 1024 bytes, counting from 0
       Device Boot Start     End   #cyls    #blocks   Id  System
    /dev/hda1   *      0+   2549    2550-  20482843+  83  Linux
    /dev/hda2       2550   30335   27786  223191045   83  Linux
    /dev/hda3      30336   30400      65     522112+  82  Linux swap / Solaris
    /dev/hda4          0       -       0          0    0  Empty
    Anyone has problems installing the HDD?

    can you see the device with "lsusb"?
    Are you sure they installed it?

    I've got the infor from the reseller that the disk is installed. Opened a support ticket already, but trying to figure out myself...

    I've just tried lsusb, but dunno if I'm using it right, I'm not a linux pro

    Code:
     
    sudo lsusb -t
    cannot open /proc/bus/usb/devices, No such file or directory (2)

    Nothing there...

    So it appears there's no drive yet?

    PS. I do have 2.6 kernel, which is required (as I read from the faq above)

    UPDATE:
    Yes, there's most probably no drive installed yet.
