    I am trying to help a customer do his own restore but everytime he tries the restore the process hangs midstream. He downloaded a fresh image and the same thing happened. I recall this happening to me months ago but do not remember what I did to get around problem. Any insight here would be most appreciated. The tivo drive is only months old so unlikely bad. The backup image is on a fourth partition (FAT32) on his primary hard drive. The first three partitions are NTFS.

    How can you possibly expect anyone to tell you what he is doing wrong when you have provided zero detail as to what he did?

    Are they trying to restore on too small a drive? If they are using a 160GB or larger drive with the incorrect kernal?
