Re: Upgrade my HDD in my hard modded xbox

Welcome to the forum, you've come to the right place. About the slayer's disc. It's not the most current disc out there. You're probably better off with the latest Hexen disc. I see there's a Hexen 2018 disc out there (giyf). Having used the 2017 disc rather extensively I'd say it's a good resource....

Here's a combination I've been using which doesn't cause long boot times: Nice prices. Needed a restock. Thanks I have tried two different WD HDD’s What series? Stay far away from green series in an Xbox. Their aggressive power saving features just don't work out in an Xbox. It’s on X2 5035 512mb B...

Re: Upgrading HDD/Installing Dashboard (Help please)

I doubt you have a BIOS issue, or at least I don't think you have an issue with the version of bios you're running. You're probably struggling against possible custom dash paths. If you were running a 1.6 version of the EvoX M8, I don't think you'd even get video as that bios is meant to work with t...

Re: original xbox hdd partitions size glitch

Incorrect cluster size somehow? What app did you use to format it? If it was anything other than xbpt (or XBPartitioner) 1.2 or 1.3 I'd suggest formatting the extended partitions with that and giving it another go.

Re: Creating E Drive larger than 4-5GB?

So on my 2TB system my E: drive is partitioned/formatted to the following size: 4,881.63 This seems to be whatever the default was when using xbpt to create the filesystem. You may or may not know this but I think it's worth restating at this point that the Xbox hard drive doesn't have a partition ...

Re: USA WTS $120 1ghz xbox 128mb ram Monster HD Component cable 200 GB HDD

That's a nice package. If you were in the northwest I'd consider an in-person buy just to get my hands on another good component cable. Update your profile to include state and city and someone else will probably consider the same.

Re: How to do a clean install?

So because it's chipped I can technically format every partition, even C, and start again? Ain't even technical, but yes. Format any partition. There's a folder on the HeXEn disc that is a stock C drive contents. E drive can essentially be left formatted and empty until you load whatever you want o...

Re: How to do a clean install?

I'd start by getting a HeXEn 2017 disc (very easy to find). It's got everything you're going to need to start fresh. After that it's just a matter of learning how things work to try and tailor your setup to your preferences. With a HeXEn disc and a chip-modded box like yours you don't have to fear f...

If a person can take a softmodded xbox hard drive and clone it, why isn't there a cloned copy available for download so that henceforth from then on all a person wanting to mod an xbox has to do is copy stuff over to a hard drive by running a program to format and copy over the cloned data...

Well someone's gotta ask. So ... what's this got to do with original xbox modding? If you don't mind explaining the correlation. Else someone might think this is just for clicks. You don't want that, do you? Otherwise this might get scrubbed. :roll:

Re: xbox sata mod 2tb crashes

First thing I'd suggest is to scrutinize your SATA adapter. Look for shoddy soldering quality or heat damage on the main IDE-to-SATA bridge chip. I wouldn't worry about an incorrect cluster size if you did indeed use the 1.3 version of XBpartitioner. I've never seen that version fail... not yet, any...

The possibility of corruption is there, have had it happen with the E partition before so since then I have a 'take no chances' approach to loading the contents of an Xbox hard drive. If I end up deleting a lot of files on any partition, I scrub the partition and simply load it from scratch. There s...

1. To upgrade my hard drive, do i follow the same route by just using chimp and cloning the drive (softmod way)? If you want to retain everything that's on it and transfer it to another drive, yes.

I may even add HDD password nulling to my softmod so every Xbox uses a 32 "0" key for the password thus making replacing a softmod HDD piss easy.
That, I'm sure, would be a very appreciated addition.

What are the benefits over softmodding?
Not having to lock your Hard Drive is a big one to some. Plus you get to set your own BIOS parameters with either a config file or baking it in, thus controlling your startup even more.
