    I have a 500GB Bolt on TE4 that has had symptoms of a failing HDD for about 6+ months now. I ended up buying a 1TD Crucial SSD to replace it. Upon installing the drive, I was stuck at the "Starting Up" screen. I found a video that recommended rolling back to TE3 and reinstalling the new drive after doing the guided setup on the old drive.

    I am currently back on TE3 with the new 1TB drive working as it should. I may be in the minority here but I definitely prefer the look of TE4. Will doing the update to TE4 at this point get me stuck at the "Starting Up" screen again?

    Unfortunately yes.

    Well that's unfortunate. I'll have to track down an HDD that works with TE4. Thank you!

    Why is that, has anyone figured it out definitively? I have noticed Seagate has Ironwolf NAS type SSDs available now. They are not cheap but has anyone tried one in a Tivo?

    I started looking into why certain drives work and do not work. Hit a couple of stumbling blocks and having problems getting around them.
