Dear sir,
        From the command line i could load the module sd_mod using 

modprobe sd_mod

This creates device files /dev/sda but /dev/sdb doesnot got created.But with this i could format the single harddrive at a time and then change the boot priority and format the next hardrive.

Thanks a lot it worked .
