Hi mate,

Give you a tip..

Its called CONFIG MAGIC on the xbox if you havent already used it before.. Install this program from the auto installer deluxe (http://www.aideluxe.com) and then choose the backup options..

another thing.. If your softmodded dont UNLOCK original HDD..

It will place everything you need on your xbox hdd in .txt files.. Probably E: drive i would say.. (cant remember lol.. been playing to much 360..)

Depending on whether you have a modchip or softmod will determine your next step..

If you have a modchip then easy.. Install your new hdd and then lock it with those keys using config magic..

AID will auto format a new hdd.

hope im on the right track

l8r

This is one reason I love a chip.

With a chip install. You just pop the new HD in after the chip is flashed and boot AID. Follow the prompts to format HD, install dashboards, apps, emu's and lock the HD if you feel you need too. With a chip, you can run with an unlocked HD with no problems.

I hope you find your problem. I wish I knew more about softmodding but unfortunately I don't. We have some real softmodding guru's here though. You'll get it sorted soon.

Hard Drive Upgrade using a PC
Hardware Needed:
- A PC, a blank CD-R/W and a CD Burner
- Torx 10 + Torx 20 Screwdrivers (to open your Xbox)
- A Large HDD
Software Needed:
- XboxHDM 1.9
- FTP Program (FlashFXP)
- EvoX dash (can be installed as an app)
- DVD Decrypter
Steps:
1. First make a backup from your retail disk (C, E drive and your eeprom), you can use
EvoX to backup eeprom (eeprom backup can be found on E).
2. FTP your backup data to your PC using a FTP program.
3. Unpack XboxHDM onto your pc
4. Put the eeprom backup in the xboxhdm\linux\eeprom folder, put C and E folder into
the xboxhdm\linux folder and overwrite the ones already there.
5. In the root of xboxhdm is a file named 'make-iso-win', run this file and wait for it to
finish.
6. It will make an .iso file. (You can burn this file with DVD Decrypter)
7. Take out all your hard disks in your PC and put the new hard disk (for the Xbox),
make sure its primary master and first boot is CD-ROM.
8. Put the disk you made in the CD-ROM drive and boot your PC.
9. You will get a menu, now choose Option 1 (by typing “1”) and press enter to boot
VGA console with Xbox-drive utilities (default). Type “xboxhd” when it asks you for a
login. Another list of options will show up, choose option 1 again (the one that says
“Build a new Xbox HD from scratch”) and it will begin to format and write the partition
table etc. If you put your C:\ and E:\ onto the CD then when it asks you about them
type yes and when it asks you if you would like an F select yes.
10. Reboot your PC (we are almost done)
11. Now for locking the hard drive. This time type “3” and hit enter to boot Linux with
locking/unlocking utilities. Next, type in “lockhd –a”. It will now search for the eeprom
on the CD and will automatically lock the hard drive. Now turn off the PC and take out
the hard drive when it has finished locking. Put the disk in your softmodded Xbox.
You just upgraded your hard drive and can be used in your softmodded Xbox.


This is what I used, and it works great
