    Tivo Series 1 Startup Sequence

    I have been trying to recover a drive containing a large number of recorded shows. The problem is very early in the boot sequence.
    I have tried looking for a definitive guide for the boot sequence for a TiVo but am finding what appears to be disjointed info.

    I have found a boot sequence for Linux that shows :
    1- BIOS - Presumably in flash memory on the Motherboard
    2- MBR - on HDD (hda4?)
    3-GRUB - ?
    4-Kernel - sbin/init
    5-INIT -
    6-Runlevel - etc/rc.d

    How much of the above relates to a S1 TiVo.

    My intention is to find a way of testing / fixing each step with the hope that I can recover the drive. I have copied the drive using dd with the intention of fixing the copy to avoid making the orginal drive worse. I have already proved that the problem resides in the drive not theTiVo motherboard.


    Any ideas?
    Thanks in advance
