    After I install the new drive and connect with TV to initialize the hard drive, is it necessary to replace the cover on the Tivo before this initialization?

    No, you can leave the cover off.

    I recently helped someone replace the hard drive in a Bolt. We left the cover off for about 14 days. Once we were satisfied the Bolt was good to go we put it all back together.

    Just don't let anything fall in and potentially damage/short the circuit board.
