    That thing poking you in the back is a pointer in another thread.:)

    Although searching this one should have led you to the same links.

    There are currently no known ways to capture an image from them like for the older models. You must have a working drive and copy it to another drive. Other than that, check eBay or one of the forum sponsors for a pre-imaged upgrade drive.

    Can I make a backup of my own just in case my original fails?

    John's...
    All you can currently do is make a full copy to a drive at least as large as the original.

    I tried doing this and while it succeeded in WinMFS the remaining single drive didn't boot up, so perhaps there is something wrong with the master drive as well? However, when connected to to WinMFS I was able to (successfully?) backup the drive, kernel and bootpage but when I try to restore to a known good 40GB drive it says it's not large enough, even though this backup doesn't restore any of the recordings and is only 250MB large? Few questions...

    1) Do I have to restore the backup to the same size hard drive?
    2) Could the backups from WinMFS complete successfully but not be good?
    3) Is the backup.tbk file the "image" of the drive or is that something else?

    Many thanks for the help!

    Sounds like you're trying to restore to a WD or Seagate and the image came from a machine that left the factory with a Maxtor installed back when Maxtors had a slightly higher LBA number than other brands for the same nominal size.

    Ordinarily I wouldn't recommend this, but you could try restoring with a smaller swap size specified and see if it fits just for test purposes.

    No, it doesn't work. So is there a way to confirm that I at least have a valid image/backup?

    What's the model number and brand of the original A drive? The B drive? The drive to which you're trying to restore? Are you trying to restore to the original A drive?

    I've got a 540040 image you can download

    https://dl.dropbox.com/u/49887720/540_GSet.bak

    https://dl.dropbox.com/u/49887720/540_GSet.tbk

    The .bak is for the MFS Live cd, the .tbk is for WinMFS

    If you want to get the original A drive going again to save settings and recordings, there are a couple of tricks you can use WinMFS to try.

    Thank you, just downloaded them but same deal says my destination drive is too small.

    My original set up was (2) Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 160GB drives. I am now trying to restore to a Maxtor D740X-6L 40GB drive.

    I don't care about any recordings just want to get the tivo back up and running.

    Are both the 160s toast?

    Well I thought my original master drive was ok but it never boots up after divorcing from the slave drive so I figured it must be bad as well...although only the slave has tripped the SMART warning. However, when connecting it to WinMFS it seems to still recognize it as if it's ok. Below is the MSINFO on it for what it's worth...?

    The 40GB you have is a Maxtor, but not one of the "fat" ones, LBA wise, so that's why the image is too big.

    Hook up both 160s, select the A drive, then select the B drive and see if WinMFS will re-marry them.

    If so, stick 'em back in the machine and run Kickstart 58.

    Then try divorcing them again.

    If no remarriage, try fix divorce S3 (I know it's an S2, but what have you got to lose).

    Also try fix swap.

    If none of those work, try

    Fix Bootpage Option 2

    which will take this

    Boot Page: root=/dev/hda4
    Active Boot Partition: 3 Active Root Partition: 4
    Backup Boot Partition: 6 Backup Root Partition: 7

    and turn it into this

    Boot Page: root=/dev/hda7
    Active Boot Partition: 6 Active Root Partition: 7
    Backup Boot Partition: 3 Backup Root Partition: 4

    I'm not sure what was wrong with the original config but I was able to restore your image to my original 160GB master drive. I did that before I had a chance to read your message here. Seems ok so far, crossing my fingers! Thanks again for all the help!

    So what we need now is to send you over to read the SATA adapter thread and then you can start looking for a deal on a 1TB drive.
