I've been using weaknee's interactive upgrade guide to do a swap out upgrade on my HDVR2. When I try to mount the fat drive, I just get errors (no Tivo drive in my PC at the moment...just want to get it to mount my copy to drive first):
cmd: mount /dev/hdc /mnt
FAT: bogus logical sector size 64543
VFS: Can't find a valid FAT filesystem on dev 16:00
UMSDOC: msdoc_read_super failed, mount aborted
mount: you must specify the filesystem type
At this time, I've tried it with a 160GB drive with a 30GB FAT32 partition (created in XP). I've also put in a 20GB drive with a single primary partition formated to FAT32 (via both DOS FDISK from a 98 boot floppy and XP) and I get the same errors. Any ideas?
Right on BobCamp1, this just drove me crazy last night. I have upgraded lots of drives and could not figure out why my boot CD was giving me trouble... I finally figured out that I had dropped the 1 off the command... include the "1" and everything went fine.
Arg! I can't believe I did that...I'll have to pull my old system admin textbook off the shelf and beat it into my head a few times...that said, I ended up not making a backup. That's OK, as I'm shelving the original Tivo drive--just wanted a bit of insurance. The instructions really are good though--if you can *read*, it really is a painless upgrade.
