    I'm really new to this but I have found all the instructions on how to change the hard drive. I beleive the hard drive in my Brothers Hughes HDVR2 is bad, we tried to do a system initilization and now it just sits at the formatting screen and never finishes. I assume the hard drive is bad so we would like to change it, question is, will I have problems copying the system from the old drive to the new? Also, are we going to have problems using a Western Digital 160gb from Wal-Mart?

    I'm trying to replace a bad 120GB drive with a new 250gb drive but am having problems with the boot CD. I'm getting a weird error message when booting to this CD. My PC sees the CD just fine and starts the boot sequence. Then I get this:

    Welcome to the rescue disk
    Trying to mount the CD-ROM, try 1
    Trying to mount the CD-ROM, try 2
    Trying to mount the CD-ROM, try 3
    Trying to mount the CD-ROM, try 4
    Trying to mount the CD-ROM, try 5
    No CD-ROM found

    I'm assuming it has something to do with this, paging up to verify where the PC recognized the drives:

    hde is the old TiVo drive
    hdf is the new drive
    hdg is the DVD drive where the boot CD is currently and is on the secondary master

    When booting from the boot CD available in the Hinsdale instructions, everything shifted down 4 slots (i.e. the old TiVo drive is at hda, the new at hdb, the DVD drive at hdc, etc.)

    Any ideas?​

    Rescue Disk? do you happen to have a system Install/Recovery floppy in the drive?

    As for the drive letter shift that happens with some add-on IDE cards.
