Getting 2TB drive for a Series 3 that is on FiOS(order for inserting CC)

My Mom's Series 3 (OLED) TiVO 750GIg hard drive is failing. Just ordered a new 2TB drive from DVR_DUDE on Ebay. I know that I should do guided setup without a cable cards in. But after guided setup should I put both cards in with it unpluged and boot it up. Or should I reboot with the cards out and put one in at a time. I know that FiOS doesn't pair their cards but I need to know what order to follow.

Thank you for any help.

Can't speak for FIOS but I know that Tivo likes to have the CableCard(s) installed before you run Guided Setup. At least it does for my cable because it needs to figure out which set of channels to load (analog vs digital). Check this thread to see if anything useful is there:

I just did a drive replacement on my S3. I left the CCs in the box, just swapped out dying drive with a freshly imaged one and did Guided Setup with no problems. I'm on FIOS as well.
