Supported operating systems:
Windows users must install a special driver on their computers in order to use the Thunderbolt connection. Once the driver is installed, users can prepare the disks and RAID for a Windows environment.
RAID cannot be configured using Windows 7 Standard and Home editions.
To download the installer for the LaCie Thunderbolt driver, please select your product below:
Since this LaCie product is originally configured in the HFS+ file format (for use on Mac) and RAID 0, all partitions must be erased, including the EFI partition. Windows Disk Management cannot erase the EFI partition so you'll need to run Diskpart, a separate Windows utility. For additional information on Diskpart, please click here.
The steps below are illustrated using a LaCie Little Big Disk, which contains two hard disks.
If you successfully completed Part 2, then your LaCie Thunderbolt storage currently has no RAID set up. In Part 3, you'll set up a RAID array using Windows Disk Management.
