gimme,

www.bootdisk.com , go here, get a windows 98 or ME bootdisk, install it in a floppy. Then use it to format your HDD.
[ also try using your cd-rom cable and see if it detects..]

gimme,

If you get the bootdisk, you can format it from DOS. And try to update your BIOS too.

First of all you need this :

http://www.seagate.com/support/disc/...s/discwiz.html

And since you dont have a Floppy drive youll have to burn it to a CD and set your CD-Rom drive to your first boot device.

After that follow the on screen instructions.
