RB option 1 rewrites the bootpage to tell it to boot from partitions 2,3, and 4, and option 2 tells it to boot from partitions 5, 6, and 7
You can run one option, test it in the TiVo, then if that doesn't work, run the other one and test it again.
If WinMFS won't tell you where it's already set, there's something on the MFS Live cd v1.4 which may tell you, and I used to know the name of it.
If you don't already have a copy of that cd burned for yourself, you should, if you own any hard drives of any kind.
You could boot with it with no hard drives attached at all and type
bootpage - ?
and see from the error message if that's the program of which I'm thinking.
I'd do it for you, but my TiVo wrangling motherboard is tied up replacing my Tivo Desktop motherboard, and there aren't any good deals on used setups around here.
