Advertisements Having long dispensed with PCs in favour of Apple Macs, I am now left with the small issue of trying to upgrade my TiVos without a PC. I have set up a Virtual Machine using Parallels, and configured it to boot from the MFSLive-1.4.iso image. So far, so good. I have purchased 2 x USB2.0 to SATA/IDE cables, and connected the 120Gb Maxtor IDE drive from one of my TiVos up to it. Similarly, I have connected a Samsung 1Tb SATA drive to the other cable. MFSLive recognises the SATA 1Tb drive no problem, however with the Maxtor it only comes up as a 10Mb drive - so presumably it's locked. Since the Maxtor drive itself is an upgrade, then it must have been unlocked in order for the upgrade to be performed, so I'm guessing that the TiVo has relocked the drive after it was installed. So, to my dilemma. I can run "diskutil" from the MFSLive Linux image, however this assumes that the drive is connected on a /dev/hdx device whereas (because they are USB connected) my drives are /dev/sda and /dev/sdb. I want to unlock the drive that is connected to /dev/sda. Any suggestions as to how to do this? Buying a PC for this purpose is definitely the LAST resort! Thanks in advance!
