@satpink
if u connected the hdd with your box and tried to mount it, your laptop wont recognize the disk. what u have to do is to right click on my computer tab on your desktop and click manage and disk management. choose the disk and format accordingly

as regards the 800 you need to add line to your etc/fstab file in order for your box to recognize the hdd

/dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part1 /media/hdd auto defaults 0 0

the way i did it (using standard image that came pre-loaded) is plug HDD into esata port with dreambox power turned off -> then turned on the power and booted the dreambox.
Then go to the HDD setup option in system setup and look for an initialize button.
Once this is done, your HDD will be formated and fully recognised by your dreambox.

I then flashed my PLi image, and everything worked fine.

you could always refer to the user guide section 7 for help with HDD operations
