Bought a Premiere used from someone and it had a bad drive. Tried copying the drive but it was too far gone. I had a backup drive from another Premiere sitting around. It had no shows on it but I had not cleared and deleted everything so settings still there. I put in in and guess what? It worked. And I did NOT get any errors due to installing a drive from another Premiere.......... I had my Amazon and Hulu accounts on the backup drive, they were still there after putting the drive in the new Premiere, did not have to enter account/passwords again. Maybe did not get the motherboard/drive relationship error since there were no recordings? Who knows, all I know is it worked, did not have to clear and delete everything or do any kickstarts.
