    Just loaded the image on 2 TB drive. Thanks for providing that, tried looking for JMFS to expand, but not having any luck. Could you point me to it and give a few instructions for a newbie? Thanks again.

    Just curious, how long was your TiVo running with the 2TB drive before it failed and what model of drive was it?

    I just asking because barring a freak circumstance, the proper drive in a DVR should last many years.

    You should specify exactly which Premiere model you have.

    Look at the sticker on the back where the power cord plugs in and find the number that starts with TCD

    So despite saying you needed a Premiere image, you actually needed a Premiere XL image?

    Newbie here :)

    I finally pulled out my TCD748000 Premier XL put of my storage unit, had been in there for a little over a year.

    It won't boot up now, I opened it up and it looks like the original 1TB hard drive powers up, makes 3 or 4 little bumping sounds and then nothing happens. :mad:

    Is there anyone who can send me the link for the software so I can push it to a new 1TB drive or possibly upgrade it to 2TB? :)

    I recently secured a 748 series premiere. tried to upgrade the hard drive from 1T to 2T, and there seems to be an issue. I think the software image might be starting to have issues. I used dvrbars as well as winmfs. whenever I tried to put in the 'new' 2T HD, the TiVo will not get past the start up screen. I did to the kickstarts w/the original HD and doing that was able to get the software upgraded to 2.6 after a couple of times. assuming I have diagnosed the issue as wonky software, is there any way for me to get a clean image for a 748?

    Ok, here's an update. I ended up buying a 3TB WD Green drive to replace the dead 1TB.

    First I used DVRBars to copy the factory software onto the new hard drive, then I used the JMFS CD to expand the drive. It went from 143 hours of HD to 431 hours. I didn't supersize it at this time.

    The software part is done. Tomorrow I will do the hardware part and actually install it in the Premiere XL. Will let you know what happens. ;)

    PM sent. You might want to search the Upgrade forum for PUIS (Power Up In Standby) posts. There have been several reports of WD20EURX drives that have PUIS enabled. You can use HDAT2 from the Universal Boot CD to disable it.

    HDAT2 can be found on the Ultimate Boot CD (ver 5.34) under:
    -HDD
    --Diagnosis
    --HDAT2

    1. Select HDAT2 then load all drivers
    2. Select the drive you want to check the PUIS setting on
    3. Select “command menu/command feature sets”
    a. 'Power-Up in Standby (PUIS) feature set is near bottom with a status of enabled or disabled. If enabled, arrow down until the feature set is highlighted then select return. It will ask for confirmation that you want to change the status. Enter Y to proceed with disabling PUIS.
    4. My drive arrived with PUIS disabled.
