View Full Version : Problems when adding a second hard drive

10-12-2003, 03:01 AM
Well, went ahead and tried to add a second hard drive to my stand alone svr-2000. Everything seemed fine through mfstools, but then when i put the drives back in my tivo it won't boot :(

everything seems normal, it comes up with the 'just a few more seconds....' screen but then turns off and reboots.

anyone experienced this before or have any suggestions?

Sounds like you messed something up, I have no idea what, however.. Do you have a backup? I'm planning on adding a 2nd hard drive to my recently hacked DSR7000, do I need to just follow the hinsdale how to for adding a second drive? What did you use?

I have a backup but I was hoping to keep all my recordings and schedules in place.

I just followed the Hindsdale, was very simple (if I could just get it to work in the Tivo).

Double check the jumper settings and cable connections.
