gsod after adding a new hdd

i have a huhges sddvr-40
has a factory maxtor 40gig
added a maxtor 160gig
used the instantcake sddvr-40 software
everything said through the creation that it was a success
plugged it up and got green screen reading a severe error has occured.
called tivo and they said wasnt their problem
called direct tv and said give it 24hrs. then unplug if its still doing it.
Am i wasting my time did i brake the tivo or should i just wait and see if the unit will repair itself?
