After purchasing Instant Cake for a Tivo TCD24008A I have come to realize that all three computers that I have access to have only 1 IDE interface which is pretty common on newer motherboards (hard drives are SATA). Obviously, I can't put my hard drive on the 2nd IDE because I don't have one. Am I out of luck or can I put the CD and the hard drive on the single primary IDE with the hard drive as master and the CD as slave? Or, can I use a SATA DVD drive and put the hard drive on the single IDE? :confused:
hi guys need some help on which way to go from here... I have A sa 2 TCD24004A I ordered instantcake and the iso file was 190 MB.. I have used nero over and over to burn the disk...

I will appreciate everything that U can do.... ok... thanks guys Daddy1 (William):D
for the drive to be on hdc it has to be on the secondary ide cable as primary master
also try putting your cdrom as primary master on the first ide cable
I had to put the hard drive on secondary IDE as master and the cd rom also on the secondary IDE as slave also had to go into setup and disable primary IDE master and slave and auto detect secondary master and slave change the boot sequince to 3.5 floppy then cd rom then hard drive and worked fine just remember to remove cd from the drive so you don't mess up your windows drive.
