Hello, I bought Knoppix USB (and am learning Linux) with a view to reformatting an old Windows 7 laptop HDD. Knoppix booted up fine from the USB stick but can't see the HDD. This might be because it can't see it, but alternateively it could simply be that I don't know where to look on the Knoppix GUI, being new to Linux. I can't see any levels "above" or "outside" the Knoppix. The laptop mouse seems to work fine.

I see the forum instruction, for those who cannot see hardware to 'post a full output of "lspci -v" ' but I don't know what that means. Can anyone give me a reference for instructions on this point?

Thanks for your help.
