Hello, this is my 1st post... I have taken the hard drive out of my old TiVo and want to use it in my computer. I am more fammiliar with electronics, but I have enough experiance with computers that I should be able to do this with a little help. My problem is that the hard drive only shows about 600MB free space left when I tried to put Win2000 on it. I assume it's because there is already a bounch of video and OS already on there... I couldn't figue out how to format it. Someone suggested that this is because TiVo used Linux and it's a "stronger" OS then Windows so I will have to figure out some way to reformat it so I can use it in my computer. Help! Please :confused:
Thanks so much!

Alright ZeoTiVo, didn't mean to offend irritate anyone. You seem to have read enough of my question by now... You are correct that I am only seeing the 600MB partition. So what do I do then?
Thanks.

windracer, thanks! There are many options on that page... do I want to look under "Hard Disk Wiping Tools", "Partition Tools" at FDISC, or other? Not sure which to use cause this is somewhat new to me. Plus I see this:

"For those of you interested in a Windows version of the Ultimate Boot CD, you might want to check out this project initiated by Ben Burrows."

which brings the question... am I going to boot up in Linux (which I know notheng about) or windows/dos?
Thank you thank you thank you!
