If you put a 160GB image on a 1TB drive (or any drive larger, in LBA number, than the original TCD652160 drive) with either the MFS Live cd or the WinMFS program, do not do the expansion into the rest of the space as part of that process.
If you use the .bak file, do not include the -x option on the command line (might as well skip -z as well)
If you use the .tbk file, then when WinMFS finishes and offers to expand tell it no.
Then check the new drive with
and make sure everything looks okay.
The partition map will show a large Apple Free partition on the end of the drive.
At that point you can do the expansion with
Just take my word for it.
