Is it possible to boot a Series 1 hard drive in a Series 2 machine? This would enable me to keep my lifetime sub and preserve my current recordings. If not, is there a site that does tivo repairs? I think I have a bas power supply, but I want tto verify the symptoms first and then have it repaired.

The series one and two tivos are not compatible with each other. I son't remember the name of the company, but if you search this forum for 'power supply", you will probably find the company that fixes them.

also the lifetime subscription does not transfer with the hard drive even between series I or II. I think it is tied to the motherboard.

the lifetime sub is tied to the serial number. the serial number is contained in a chip on the motherboard, but can be changed if needed.
