Returning Xbox hard drive to stock.

Post by alfredo2 » Sun Mar 19, 2017 7:58 am

I have a modded xbox which I want returned to stock. It has a stock hard drive but I noticed that it has an extra partition (f drive), which I understand is extra space that is not used on the stock Seagate 10 gb hard drives. What I want to do is remove that partition so it is just like the stock xbox hard drive. I am not very knowledgeable on modding and I have somone doing the work for me, but I am curious on how to remove that partition to make it just like a stock xbox hard drive with that space unusable?

There is an option to return a drive to retail with format with slayers the other auto installers I don't know if they have this option.

Why do you want to in mod it ?

I don't really have a need to have it modded and would just like to restore the console to its original stage. It is still in good condition and has been hardly used and I would like to have an xbox in this condition simply stock.

No utility for the Xbox has an 'unformat' option. No worries, though. The retail kernel and software can't see anything beyond the 8 Gigabytes the stock software is allotted so you might as well ignore any extended partition(s). Also, yes any Slayer's or recent HeXEn disc can do a return to Stock... I think. They're easy enough to use and find (giyf; and that's not meant in a curt manner).
