    Anyone every try to use Norton Ghost for the Tivo Hard drive Upgrade?
    I just bought a Segate 250 gig for my Tivo Series 2 Humax TCD540040.
    I want to take out the current HD in my Tivo, take the 250 gig, slap on some IDE cables and put them into a computer and Run Norton Ghost in Dos Mode. Then Make a Disk Copy (not partition copy).
    Theoretically this using Norton Ghost in Dos mode should still work right?

    no
    tivo's disk layout is one that Ghost doesn't understand.

    I wonder if Ghost4Unix would work?

    But why not just use MFSTools?

    according to Ghost4unix's FAQ, it does bit for bit copy.
    But I concur MFSTools does the job.

    Ghost4unix can copy bit-for-bit, but there's no way to expand to utilize additional disk space. MFSTools is free and the way to go.
