Anyone every try to use Norton Ghost for the Tivo Hard drive Upgrade?
I just bought a Segate 250 gig for my Tivo Series 2 Humax TCD540040.
I want to take out the current HD in my Tivo, take the 250 gig, slap on some IDE cables and put them into a computer and Run Norton Ghost in Dos Mode. Then Make a Disk Copy (not partition copy).
Theoretically this using Norton Ghost in Dos mode should still work right?

no
tivo's disk layout is one that Ghost doesn't understand.

according to Ghost4unix's FAQ, it does bit for bit copy.
But I concur MFSTools does the job.

Ghost4unix can copy bit-for-bit, but there's no way to expand to utilize additional disk space. MFSTools is free and the way to go.
