One of my HR24-500s has error code 14-758 and won't boot past the error message.

Is there any way to disable the hard drive so it will boot up and be used as a regular receiver.

I've tried to press "Select" at the "Just a few more moments" screen to enter the diagnostics but it just shows the hard drive error message and no options to test or proceed - only option is to reboot.

Call DirecTV for a replacement.
Make sure they do not say "upgrade".
Should cost you $20 for shipping.

You might be able to put an external HDD on the 24, but Jimmie is right, your best bet is a direct replacement. Shouldn't be a problem, just call and tell them the error code and they'll ship you a replacement.
