With a softmodded box, First you need to make a back up of the eeprom. Second ftp the eeprom to your pc along with the directories mentioned in the xboxhmd tutorial. Third make an iso. The disk you create will prepare you new hdd. Once you have the new hdd, you will have to softmod that.
Don't do anything with your old hdd. This is your saving grace. If you unlock it or delete any thing from it, you'll have to concider buying a chip. So DO YOU HOMEWORK FIRST.
Good luck

Ok here's what I've done . everything the tutorial showed me Im positive i did that correct cause iI've done it twice.
Now when i put the New hd in the box iits stays on the Title screen (with the Big x and lil xbox and ms logo(no dash) ..thats it Im sure the ms dash is on the drive (because it got as far as showing the intro screen).

I dont know . i dont have a chipped box could that be the problem?. i mean I do have soft mod on my stock HD but no chips , was the tutorial for chipped xb?.hmm Please help I feel Im so close.

I'm thinking that maybe you didn't lock the harddrive afterwards. What make and model is your New HDD that you are trying to use?? some of the models can't be locked at all. Not for love nor money.
Let me know what make and model it is.

Check to see if your hard drive is listed in this database - http://www.xbox-hq.com/html/modules.php?name=Xbox_HardDrives

It will tell you if your hard drive can be used properly in an xbox. Coincidentally, can or have you used it a pc at all?? if so did you have any problems with it there. Maybe you got a virus on it there. Try formatting it in a pc first also then trying everything with the xbox.
