54832D now thinks it's a 54831D after hard drive rebuild.

Question asked by JayW on Mar 18, 2013

I had a problem with the Windows XP partition on my 54832D scope that could not be fixed. I tried doing the recovery procedure by pressing down and holding the CTRL key when the Agilent logo is displayed, but the menu that came up did not offer to restore the drive, only to boot Windows XP which was corrupted. I managed to get the Ghost recovery files off of the hidden recovery partition and re-image a new drive and got it to boot, however, the scope now thinks it's a 54831D - and when bandwidth testing the scope it would seem that it now is only a 600MHz 54831D as there's a sharp roll-off in vertical amplitude above this point.

I suspect there may have been a hidden area on the original hard drive which tells the scope what model there is, but only guessing here...

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
