If you can take the top off and have a look (post a pic) at the motherboard, under the DVD rom, to see if a chip has been installed.

FTP in and list the contents of the C partition.


For a sotf modded xbox the easiest way to upgrade your HDD is to clone it with a program called `Chimp`

For a Hard modded ( chip or TSOP ) just install your new HDD and use AID
http://aidtracker.com/ to set it up.

Ok, the last pic is the one we want to be looking at - and by the looks of it it doesnt look like you have a chip installed.

Its a version 1.2 - 1.5 motherboard, Could of had the TSOP flashed or could be soft modded, probably your safest option is to install `Chimp` on the xbox and use that to clone your hard drive.
If your xbox is full of Emus, apps and whatever else it could take a while to clone.

its something along the lines of :

install chimp on your xbox
run chimp
take the IDE cable out of the DVD rom
install new HDD inplace of dvd rom
follow the options in chimp
when done, replace old HDD with new
hook up the dvd rom

Bingo, pat yourself on the back, couple of quick pints in the pub then back home in time for dinner.

You can FTP chimp to your Apps folder ........ If you only have one DVD left i recommend you download AID (links a couple of posts up) It has a load of Apps, Dashboards & Emulators - Its a handy tool if your messing with xboxes.

Chimp is on the AID disc - UnleashX will be transferred to your new HDD, everything on the old will be copied to the new.
