NT 4.0 SP6 External USB HD

Posted on 2004-11-18

I have a slew (read: thousands) of Dell GX1 systems that require me to connect an external USB hard drive for migration purposes.  Does anyone here know if there is a specific USB external hard drive or hard drive caddy I can purchase that will permit such a thing?

Here's what I already know:
Dell GX1's do have (2) 1.1 usb ports available.
NT 4.0 was not made to support USB, does not officially support it, etc...I don't really need to be reminded anymore!
Dell's website provided no downloads specific to USB support with that model desktop.

This is an incredibly urgent issue and as such I am assigning max points, as an answer will (IMO) be on the same level as an act of God.

    Don't give me the points

    Post in community support and ask them to close it, or wait for 3 weeks and a mod should post

    BTW I use the ION USB driver from Dell.

    It's OK, I don't mind the sharing!  I am planning on using the IONetworks driver myself.

    Cross your fingers for me!
