    It's been a few years since I did this... And I have a new computer Win7x64. I tried running WINMFS and it wouldn't recognize my USB connected drive.

    I had to resort to dragging an ole' WinXPx32bit machine out to get a successful restore.

    All went well, it's going through the guided setup right now.

    Did I miss something somewhere or are x64 bit and or Win7 not supported?

    You need to make sure you run WinMFS with administrator privileges. I run it on a 64bit Win7 and 64bit Win8 system without problems.

    I think if you can get a TCD130xxx image, that will work as well.

    Unfortunately I don't know where to get either.

    Hi ggieseke,

    I tried to PM you on this as well, but I don't have enough posts yet.

    I obtained a TCD746320 with a bad drive. All my other backup images are for old S2's.

    Any help out there?

    I get the GSOD and it tries to do a self diagnosis. 3 hours later it reboots and does the same ...

    This is my LifeTime unit, and since it's died my other one will go up in monthly charge.

    Please PM me if you have an image

    If you have a drive with an LBA number of at least 160086528, which equates to an 80GB Maxtor drive back when their drives had a few more bytes than the other brands for the same number of GB claimed, then these will work on a 240


    Use the MFS Live cd v1.4 to restore with this one

    and WinMFS to restore with this one

    All 652 images are "set" for 160GB.


    This one can be restored and expanded (up to a point) with the MFS Live cd v1.4

    This one can be restored and expanded with WinMFS

    I can't swear that the image is already updated to 11.0k, but you can restore to drive that's 1TB or smaller, don't expand, test it in the TiVo and let it update if necessary, and then take it back out and expand with WinMFS's mfsadd.

    Two months ago, I had upgraded my 540 to a 1 TB and last night it failed during a transfer and went into a reboot loop. I replaced it with the original and it got an update to 9.32c.

    Hello,

    My Tivo Series 2 is on it's 4th hard drive - one just went bad, so I bought a new WD AV-GP 320GB drive to install. I already have the SATA>PATA converter.

    Unfortunately my old copy of InstantCake is not seeing the new hard drive and won't let me select it for TiVO SW installation. Not sure why that is.

    I'm thinking it may be simplest if I get a new image and install it using WinMFS?

    Anyone have a reasonably recent image for the TCD140060? Must support LBA48.

    Thanks!
    Dan

    My TCD746320 drive went bad last week after a year or good use, I never did get around to trying to image and expand it, unfortunately. I ordered a used one from ebay fro $35 as spare parts to get a drive to copy from, and also a new 2TB from newegg.

    Of course, the blank drive is here already (yea newegg), so if someone could help me find an image now I could have it ready in time for the weekend.
