    not just myself, many guys did the recovery .. you don't need to install Linux on the notebook, just download Ubuntu, burn CD, boot from it; then play with it to be familiar

    also you'll need two USB enclosures - one is your old EHD and new one - for recovering EHD's recordings

    and read all posts how-to

    I've had similar experiences with external drives. Try to reboot the dvr-WITHOUT the external drive plugged in, and try again. After a successful boot, plug in the external drive to the front usb port-I've had problems with the rear one.
