    Connect up the wireless card and run a new guided setup.

    that site explains STEP BY STEP, what you need, where to go to find what you need and what to do after gathering all that you need, try reading the site from top to bottom again, it's all there for you :up: :up: :up:

    Pay the $5. It's well worth it.

    The 000001 file is your backed up hard drive image.

    I have read that a 1000 times and still I will be missing couple files which is

    VMLINUX_.GZ (PTV BOOT CD) & 000001 ( from instantcake CD) which I dont have.

    I just need to find out is there a way to download this 2 files without paying.

    You most likely will not find the VMILINUX file as I have read that the folks at PTVUpgrade had to pay the creator for the rights to distribute it. Come on, it's only $5. :rolleyes:

    As I stated before, the 000001 file is the Tivo image file and it can be yours for FREE. Just back it up using the LBA48 CD from PTVUpgrade. You could pay $20 for it if you wanted.
