Hello,

I was just wondering if anyone has attempted this yet. I have a Lacie Ethernet 4TB. The initial primary C: drive is set to 4GB. Way to small. I would like to configure the primary to be a bit bigger. I tried to resize the drive and add more space but I can't becasue the remaning space is set to a spanned volume. I know it is not meant for this, and Lacie does not support it. But hey, I want to try it. It has a windows XP embedded os.

Any clues?

Thanks in advance

Without spending months (!!!) learning how to recompile XP Embedded and to then get that image onto the "C" drive; not to mention buying the licensing, you can't install anything new that isn't supported by the Lacie version anyway.  Heck, you can't even run Explorer.exe as there is no option in the Task Manager to run a command.
I guess you could try installing XP from scratch using an external USB CD drive and deleting the partitions; but, then you're going to discover just how miseably slow that unit is.  It's a VIA C7 with no power at all.  ( comparable to a P4 1.1Ghz and not dual core, ala 2001-2)
