I would take both drives, put them in your PC, and rerun the 25xtream install. It will automatically remarry the drives as part of the process

If you have lots of Season Passes or Wishlists you want to save, then you can create an unmarried image to restore to the new drives. Doing both drives at the same time is the best way, even though they don't really marry until they are back in the Tivo.

But it sounds like you have other problems, if your PC reboots that way. Try removing all of the drives and see if it still does it. If not, then maybe you have a drive jumpered wrong. The fact that they are married has nothing to do with the reboot problem.
