Originally posted by mtg101 As mentioned above, I'm planning on replacing my drive with a single 120GB A drive. Would it be useful to people if I tried it first with MFSTools 2.0 to see if I get the swap problem? Yes please! Start by trying to replicate Cpen's upgrade, if that works reliably I'll have to rewrite the top post in this thread. To be a worthwhile test you must ensure that hdx8 doesn't contain a valid swap partition. Obviously the first time the disk will be blank, but on subsequent attempts, dd hdx9 onto hdx8 to make sure it's corrupt. I'm sure you really just want to get your TiVo working, but if you want to try some variation, I would be interested to see if it makes a difference if MFS Tools runs in a byteswapping environment.
