    Hi,

    a big thanks to all for the information in this forum to help upgrade

    however

    I managed to use the non-big disk tools but everthing seemed to go Ok even if I only ended up with 137Gb out of 250Gb. However with disk back in Tivo everthing went well until the main menu which was black& white and everything hung from there.

    Do I restart with the big disk support MfsTools or have I b*ggered my disk?

    Thanks,

    Ian

    Just re-do it with the 'big disk support' aka the LBA48 kernel :) Your disk should be fine.

    No problem. That was purely and educated guess, by the way. I was hoping someone else might post to disagree but seeing as they haven't I must assume that, for once, I am right. It does happen ocasionally :D

    Put it this way. If I'm wrong you've lost nothing ;)

    and make sure that copykern says swap file initialised and that the swap file
    is at least 250 MB (1MB per 1GB of MMFS is the recommendation).
