    My Premiere drive is trashed, so no backup is possible. How do I use DVRBARS to install a new image on a new drive?

    (moving this here, as it is the correct thread)

    I also have a dead source drive from my Premiere TCD746320, and I was hoping to find an image for it.

    long time lurker first time poster :) my TCD746320 was giving me issues and I managed to get it a boot loop after a kickstart 57. Spent a day trying ddrescue but the loop exist on the new target drive. So after much reading I am image begging. :eek:

    So after a re-image :D it is necessary to do C&DE to marry. But is there a way to do this before guided setup?

    That probably depends (and this may vary from model to model) on whether the image was made from a drive set to boot up into Guided Setup or not.

    If you boot the TiVo with the new drive or new image on old drive, and it starts in GS, you pretty much can't go back and can't go around, you have to go through.

    If the image is from a never-booted factory drive like my 748 image, the C&DE isn't necessary at all. My 746 image is from another member and it was already initialized.

    The fastest way through the first Guided Setup is to choose zip code 00000 and Tiny TiVo for the lineup. I got that trick from nooneuknow and it speeds up the process a lot.

    I have a TCD75825 (XL4) that was stuttering. I determined it was the drive. I was trying to clone it to a new 2TB WD Drive using ddrescue, but it's been running for 4 days now and only achieved 300GB transferred with 10,000+ errors. I assume it's taking so long because the original drive isn't reading properly?

    It sounds like writing a clean TCD75825 image is a better option. Where can I find that?

    Thanks,
    The Juggler
