    Thabto,

    Thank you for sending me the file links. I'm not sure what to do with them.

    TCD652160 HD v11.0n.K1.tbk

    winmfs.exe

    Am i supposed to boot in them? Which one should I be using. Does it have to be burned to a cd, or can I run it from my windows XP drive?

    It may very well also be the power supply, capacitors failing, not providing sufficient power to the MB, hard drive, causing boot loop.

    I changed the capacitors and it was working fine. Then one day just welcome screen. It maybe hard drive issue. Tried kickstart but no acknowledgement or handshake.

    Hard drive is also aged. You can always try a new drive. I recommend WD10EFRX (about $65), WD20EFRX (about $85.) They're WD Red drives meant for NAS systems so they can run 24/7. There really are not much settings to fool with either. If you try to find another 160GB drive, it would be hard and cost more. It would just be a matter of putting a specific image on it and expanding to use the full size.

    Let me know, and I can pass it on to you. I always include instructions with it.

    Thank you again. Can you use a old hard drive with windows on it? How do you hook up the drive. I put a drive in one of those usb devices it saw the drive but winmfs didn;t see the drive. Any ideas?

    If it's already formatted as a Windows drive, WinMFS won't see it unless you check the Show Mounted Drive option. After that you should be able to overwrite it with the image.

    Warning: Make sure you select the right drive - it would be a shame to wipe out your operating system drive.

    I would like to thank everyone that offered suggestions to help fix my Tivo. I tried another drive with success no errors. Great forum.

    Please send me a series 3 HD file. I was using the drive to make a clone and the unit apparently hosed the source file. Thanks in advance.

    With such generic information, we cannot just send an image blindly. A model number is needed.
